“Because of Mike’s diligence and extensive knowledge of this, “system” the benefits were split between all three of my children. He made is possible for them to access the things they will need; a college education and braces to mention just a few!
In this difficult process I found myself losing faith in the highly praised firemen’s, “Brotherhood,” Mike Ramirez single handedly reinstated my faith in it. He is the true meaning of brotherhood; he treated the widow of one of his brothers as if it were his own, and a truly amazing friendship was formed out of a truly tragic event.
When you go through such a traumatic public death it’s easy to forget many necessary details and deadlines, I was able to focus on my children, and Mike took care of the rest. Receiving the benefits, a beautiful memorial, acceptance, moving forward while honoring memory: none of this would have happened without him.” – Jennifer Hobbs
