Just two days before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Jill Suarez celebrated her ninth birthday with her entire family, including her father, NYPD Officer Ramon Suarez. It would be the last birthday she ever celebrated with him.
He was a man she always remembered seeing in his uniform, a telling sign of his dedication to his city and its people.
"I always admired him for that," Jill said. "He truly loved his job."
