I met Tim years ago during a ride a long at R2. On April 20, 2012, I am climbing in honor of Tim at the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at FDIC in Indianapolis. Rest in Peace...We Will Never Forget!

I did not know Lt. Higgins but after hearing people talk about him on tv he sounded an excellent firefighter and a guy to look up to.

In the series of finale if RESCUE ME your name was read at the end of the show by the new recruits. It was very moving and just wanted to say you and everyone that lost their lives that day live in out hearts forever.

We were recently at a 9/11 memorial service here in our hometown in Ohio and all had the opportunity to take a handmade rose that were all constructed together to form the American Flag. Each rose had the name of someone who perished in the 9/11 attacks. Our rose had the name of Lt. Timothy Higgins. Please know that we are praying for the family. As I read these comments, it seems that he was quite a person and a hero that day. God Bless.

On 9-11-2011 my wife and I joined about 270 other motorcycle riders who rode in double file to honor our fellow americans who lost their lives that tragic day 10 years ago. Each of us were given a small american flag (with a NYC firefighters name attached) to carry with us as we traveled in formation for the afternoon ride. That nite at home after the ride, we googled the heroes name on our flag--Timothy Higgins. Our hearts go out to all of his his family and friends.

My name is Justin Julian, Rescue Technician on Truck 2 with Aurora Fire Department. I posted on this memorial last year on September 11th. In that post I described the stair climb that I participated in to honor the 343 firefighters that gave their lives on 9/11/01, and most notably I climbed for Lt Higgins. This year I climbed for another one of his brothers ( Lt Harvey L. Harrell) but still wanted to write in memory of Lt higgins as well. I Truely wish that I may someday be able to have even a hint of the bravery that Lt Higgins showed that day. As long as I live I shall NEVER Forget!

I was honored to climb 110 stories today (09/11/11) at the (Nashville,TN) (TN Towers highrise) 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in memory of Lt. Timothy Higgins (S.O.C. 252). Let us never forget the sacrifice Lt. Higgins and 342 of his collegues paid that day. - Nick Combs (Nolensville Fire, TN)

Ten years later I am still without words. I will never forget. NEVER.

I did not know you personally, but knew your brother Bob in the Air Force. He spoke of you and your family often and can only imagine the type of giving man that you were. Your brother always yearned to return to New York to do the job that his heart drew him too. God bless you and all that fell that day. I will never forget. May god hold you in his loving arms.

I never met Mr. Higgins but had the pleasure of getting to know his children Chris, Cody, and Catie. They were students at Sagamore Junior High School where I was a former teacher. I can see what a great father he was simply by the way his children carried themselves. I think about your family often, especially on days as this.

After a decade since 9-11-01 you and your entire family are still in our thoughts and prayers Tim. We will always remember the sacrifice you made. God Bless You and Your Family.

I am sorry that it took 10 years, but I was going through pictures I have from a friend who helped after this tragedy and have a photo that is written on a window that says missing Lt Tim Higgins SQ 252 I Love You Brother and thought you would like to have it My prayers to his family, Debbie

Timmy, Yesterday I was part of ceremony for a monument constructed to remember all that were lost in the towers. Although we had never met I new who you were since we had mutual friends,George and Mary. Your wife worked with Mary and I met your wife through Mary and George. She would always make fun of my Honda. As a Police Sgt I just wanted to let you know, We have not forgotten and never will.

My name is Tracey and I grew up in Freeport right next to the Higgins clan. I remember the whole family as fun loving and genuine "folk". My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and I thank you for your sacrifice on 9/11 and for each and every time you put your life on the line to save another.

Well let's see my best memories of Tim had to be when he would all of a sudden break out in a song. We used to have get-togethers at my house on the weekends and listen to old 45's. Yes I said 45's. Tim was the best, and as I recall he loved to sing "Mack The Knife", and also "Summer Wind".
He was the best. Always smiling and lighting up a room.
I met Tim at the Firehouse, Hose Company #2.

Words just can't say how much you are missed Tim. I did not know all of your family, I went to school with Bob, but you being you can tell me that you had wonderful parents and a great upbringing.

Well, you are in my heart everyday, and when I look up at the stars at night to talk to my mom, I also say hi to you and Richie.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Terry and David Linton

I will miss you forever, my childhood friend.

I was just talking at work, and that horrible day was brought up, and it led me to do a search on a great friend and a big brother to Bobby, which meant he was my big brother as well. Timmy played the big brother part beyond reproach. He was a protector, teacher, leader, and prankster. He always had time for Bobby and his friends. Always smiling and making other around him happy. Obviously, he carried all those qualities with him throughout his life. He left us a hero, and for those who didn't know him, he was one way before that fateful day.

Timmy, the world is worse for your loss, but heaven must be rockin' every day since.

Love you "big brother,"
Bobby Mac
