The honorees will be: K-9 Sirius, a Port Authority Police dog, will be honored in memoriam. The Yellow Labrador Retriever perished in the collapse. His handler, Officer David Lim of Lynbrook, will accept a memorial plaque in Sirius' honor. 
Officer Lim was in the K-9 office in the WTC basement when he heard an explosion. He put Sirius in a dog crate while he investigated. Shortly thereafter, he was assisting people down a staircase in the North Tower when it collapsed. The officer believes he was at about the 5th level in the stairwell that was partly standing after the collapse. The smell of jet fuel was heavy and they elected to go up to the now top of the WTC, the sixth floor. They were tossed ropes to get down.

Beautiful Joe Society Honours Four legged Hero 
Staff  www.community  -   CF 5/15/2002 
David Lim stood before the cameras and gave a moving account of the events of September 11, 2002 that endangered his life and took the life of his four legged working companion, Sirius. Trained to detect explosives, Sirius was killed under the collapse of the World Trade Center tower two.  Lim who is attempting to put the events of 9-11 behind him, recounted his feelings of being trapped for several hours and final escape from the wreckage. Now working with a new partner, a black Labrador retriever called Sprig, Lim has returned to his job of checking traffic in the Holland and Lincoln tunnels. Lim and his boss, Inspector Gene Ceccarelli, traveled to Meaford from New York City to take part in a ceremony to honour Sirius and the numerous rescue dogs that assisted in the recovery of both the living and the dead from the wreckage of the destroyed towers. Officers and dogs from several K-9 units across Ontario paraded through Meaford’s downtown from the town hall to the park receiving extended applause from the crowd lined streets. The Beautiful Joe Heritage Society of Meaford was formed to recognize the famous 1893 novel of Margaret Marshall Saunders “Beautiful Joe” and the relationships that exist between dogs and their masters. 

They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd climb the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
