The mothers of two heroes lost on 9/11 have since come together and formed a special bond as they support each other and honor their sons' legacies.
Alice Henry and Regina Coyle are taking pause to remember their sons Joseph P. Henry and James R. Coyle ahead of the 18th anniversary of the terror attacks.
James was a probationary firefighter assigned to Ladder 3 and Joseph was also a probie assigned to Ladder 21.
But theirs was a friendship that ran deep. They were classmates in the EMS academy and then the fire academy in late 2000.
They were friends on and off the job. But on that fateful day, they both answered the call.
But it wasn't until after their deaths that Alice and Regina met and grew to become close friends themselves -- just like their sons.
