I would like to thank everyone who sent their condolences to my father, Eric Casiano. As of July 3rd, it will be two months. There are days it feels like yesterday and days that it was so long ago.

The happiest day my father ever had was graduating from the fire academy and becoming a firefighter. It takes special people to be firefighters and to risk their lives.

Thank you,
Lydia Frasca
