I usually don’t do this kind of stuff, but I was compelled to honor someone. This actually a great little project, a blogger has asked other bloggers to honor someone killed on 9/11/01 – all 2996 of them. My thoughts are with everyone who lost someone 5 years ago today. Please take a moment to read about Louis, his life and his death.
Louis Arena, age 32.
Place killed: World Trade Center.
Resident of New York, N.Y. (USA).
I made a point of looking for information. Louis was a firefighter with ladder 5 in the FDNY. His wife (Wanda) was 31 and he had two children aged 3 (Joseph) and 4 (Nina) when he died.
He was one of 8 that died with that ladder that day. His funeral was on September 19, 2001.
Today, I honor Lou Arena, who lost his life that horrible day on September 11, 2001. To his family and all of the families that lost loved ones that day, my heart truly goes out to you. To all of the firefighters out there, a special honor to you and yours – you guys go in while telling everyone else to get out.
