    Rest in Peace Lieutenant Nappi

    Made the ultimate sacrifice.


    Jumba, positive thoughts, and nothing but well wishes to you and your family, and the Lieutenant's family.

    Jumba please accept my condolences to you and your family. Only a chosen few can do what Lt Nappi do day in day out. Bravery is an understatement.

    Thank you for all the comforting words. Please continue to pray for my sister, niece and nephew, and Rich's parents and brothers, and his brave coworkers. They are all devastated, as am I. Rich was an avid sports fan and we rooted for all the same teams, except for hockey. Guess I'm now a Rangers fan. I'll tell a story: The last time I spoke with him on the phone he called during Easter Dinner. He had to work that day but about 17 or so of this large family had gathered at mom's house as we do for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Upon polishing off 2 legs of lamb I sat down to watch the Mets game. Just then my phone rang and Rich asked if I was watching. "Sure, the Mets are kicking butt." He told me to gather his kids to watch in case "something special happened." I had just joined the game and didn't realize that Niese was pitching a no-hitter. Well he didn't have to say it because I know about the jinx. Been to many huge games with him, including "Game Six." It didn't work out too well for my Devils that day. We shared alot in common as music fans also. I love and miss him. I will relay whatever fund is set up. Thank you all.

    Hey, Tom...

    over on the Hockey's Futures boards, a fan who sat behind him in Section 306 had some nice words, and put it in the game thread.... needless to say, he was watching over the Rangers tonight!

    As someone who spent a lot of years as a firefighter in the Air Force all I can say is that it's better not to question why things like these happen and try and find peace in knowing that he is with God
