About Me

Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    Remembering Lt. John F. Ginley
    As most American citizens are, I have been reflecting back on that horrible day eight years ago when our world changed forever. I will never forget the feeling of total disbelief, shock and horror as I turned on the TV at work just a few minutes before the first tower fell. I will never forget the fear and sorrow that I felt for all those that were losing thier lives before my eyes, and for us as a nation. To this day I fear for our safety and for the safety of those fighting for us over seas.

    One such man that gave his life to try to save those trapped inside the World Trade Center was Lt. John F. Ginley.

    "April Ginley knew she had a rare husband. If she was at work, Lt. John F. Ginley, a firefighter, managed the household, taking the dog to the vet or the children to the doctor. "He was a very involved parent, as far as even putting the kids on the school bus and braiding my daughter's hair," she said. He helped out in the classroom when his daughter, Taylor, 10, and son, Connor, 8, were younger, and he dressed up as a goblin in the gym for Halloween.

    One of five boys born within seven years, (four became firefighters) Lieutenant Ginley, 37, served as a mediator at times, but also perfected the stealth practical joke. "Some of the stuff he did I probably still to this day didn't know that he did it," said his brother Capt. Bob Ginley. They were one grade apart in school, but ran track together, served in the National Guard together, joined the Fire Department together, studied for their lieutenant and captain exams together, and vacationed together.

    John Ginley's reserve was part of what drew his wife to him when they met. "He was not a person that was looking for recognition," she said. "He was always the quiet one in the background." (http://www.nytimes.com/2003/03/09/national/portraits/POG-09GINLEY.html)

    His family has described John as a devoted husband and father who was involved in all his children’s many activities. John loved golf and skiing. His wife and children, his parents Joe and Betty, as well as his brothers Joe, Bob, Pat Tim and their families all live in Warwick.In his memory and to give something back to the community he loved so much, the Ginley Family has set up a scholarship in the amount of $500 a year for four years (totaling $2,000) to a Warwick Valley High School student attending college.

    Thank you Lt. Ginley for giving your life trying to save others. May you be watching over us.
