I never had the honor of meeting Michael, but he was part of a fire house that will always be a part of my life. I am a lifelong fire buff, and grew up around the corner from Eng. 62 and Ladder 32. I spent all of my free time there, and took in my first "run" at the tender age of eight, riding in the officers seat of Michaels company to be, Ladder 32. My father died suddenly when I was 10. Fortunately for me, I had 25 surrogate dads who watched over me, the officers and men of 62/32. Later in life I served as an auxiliary firefighter and auxiliary Lt. with Eng. 62. On 9/11, as I scanned the lists of those missing, I was initially relieved to see nobody listed from 62/32. How stunned and sad I was to learn later that Michael was actually assigned to the house I still consider my own, even though time and distance now separates me from The Bronx. I have always been proud of my association with the fire service in general and FDNY in particular, and know how proud you must have been to have someone serving in New York's Bravest. It has been my honor to be able to donate to the foundation, and sincerely hope to be able to attend this year's awards dinner, so I can have the pleasure of meeting you all personally. Sincerely, Vito Maggiolo

Dearest Michael, Missing you always! Especially at Christmas! Know that your laughter is missed, your smile no less faint, your company is awaited at every event, the door is always open to our hearts, come fill them this Christmas with your love, your compassion, your humor, your sense of life but most of all with your presence. Until we meet amidst the angels who protect you... Kevin

Michael, it is Christmas Eve again, the third one that you will spend in heaven and the third one that we spend missing you. Somehow each year seems to get harder. My heart just isn't into it yet I know it should be because Christmas is about the Lords birth. But it is also about family and memories and every memory of Christmas involves you. From our trips to Macy's on 34th street to see Santa Clause, to watching each Christmas special on TV. It was so hard last night to watch A Year Withoug A Santa Clause because you and I loved that one so much, especially the Heat and Snow Miser part. As my children watched and laughed my heart grew heavy because I wanted to be like them again, having you sitting right there watching the show. Luckily my dear husband Jason reminded me that those memories are now being created by our children and Aidan is having his first Christmas and that I must try to make it happy, and we will. That baby has brought so much joy to us. He is very much like you, quiet and very happy, and boy can he laugh!!!! Well I must go now, continue to watch over us and help us find the joy of the season as our hearts ache for you. All my love, your sister, Colleen

Michael, Happy (Very belated) Birthday! I was thinking about you today and realized how difficult it must have been for your friends and family to be without you on this special day. You have touched so many lives and you should know we never forget what happened and the great sacrifice you made, trying to save others. Life can be very difficult and full of challenges, but you have given so many people strength. Your spirit is amazing and you are thought of by people who barely knew you and those who knew you well. All my love and best wishes, thoughts, and prayers to you and your family and friends.

Although I now live in New Jersey, I grew up in Country Club and Throggs Neck. My first house was on Meagher Ave outside Silver Beach. Just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you this Holiday Season. The supreme sacrifice Firefighter Lynch and all his brothers made on September 11, 2001 will never, ever be forgotten.
