Dear the James R. Coyle family,
Although many years have past since the attack I will always remember what happened. He lost his life saving many others and for that I am proud. He did a selfless act and I admire that. He will always be remembered by me and everyone who was there and around the world. May his soul rest in peace and be welcomed into the Great House of God. I am so sorry for your loss.
