After the fire trucks & help arrived he simply disappeared & I never knew who he was or how to thank him. This morning 16 months later he randomly drove up my drive way with his family to stop by & check on things. I gave him multiple hugs & cried as we re-lived that tragic day for his kids to hear. I apologized for the beating he got from me holding me back.
I'm so grateful that I finally got to thank him, learn his name & tell his children how awesome their dad is. I'm truly convinced that if he was not there to hold me back, I would have ran into that building to save my birds & would have died in the fire with them.
So "Russ Orent", Happy Fathers Day. You truly were my hero that day.
