Firefighter Manuel Mojica was 37. He had six tattoos, a Harley, and a fingerless whistle so loud he always used it instead of the doorbell to let his fiancé know he had arrived. He married that fiancé and they had two children. “Manny Mo” used that whistle when he coached their Little League games.
At the end of every shift, he’d finish the evening with his own comfort ritual: a bedtime snack of milk and cookies.
