From the website, NYPD Angels
On September 11th 2001, 23 members of the New York City Police Department were chosen for a special detail. As the people in the World Trade Center Towers made their way out, our brave Police Officers began their journey upward to Heaven helping and comforting all they met along the way. The Angels welcomed them and everyone applauded as God presented them with their Wings. The men stepped in line with those chosen before them. St. Michael looked at them with pride. He knew he’d chosen the best. Our proud Police Officers made the extreme sacrific and will continue to serve and protect from up above.
May God hold in his arms ALL the Firefighters, the Emergency Medical Technicians, Paramedics, Port Authority Police Officers, Court Officers and Civilians that journeyed side by side our beloved Police Officers through the Pearly Gates to Paradise. We will remember and miss them always.
May they rest in peace.
