May 31, 2002 - Yesterday, a ceremony was held to mark the end of the recovery efforts at Ground Zero. Updating

"thank you" efforts in various ways - by visiting police precincts and firehouses, working on getting signatures on our petition

I will continue to update the website with new pictures, "News of the Nuts", and other items as they become
available. So, keep coming back!

Know that we will always be with you in spirit, and you will always be in our hearts. We will never
