Kevin Clifford is a foreman over at the water gap project on Hudson Street.
He is a member of the Sandhog’s Local 147. Kevin was unbelievable in the pursuit
of Molly. He showed up on every break he had and helped us with his expert
knowledge and his calm, confident nature was always a welcome sight. I supported
Kevin’s legs as he went through the wall to pull Molly through. I remember telling him,
watching him work with Molly and watching her finally come through the wall
was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen.
Paul Harkin (Supervisor Construction Inspector – Department of Buildings) arrived onto the
scene at just the right moment. We were all reaching our breaking point, between the media
circus, the dust we were breathing in and the overlying feeling that we were running out of
time. But Paul is a can do type of guy and he knows how buildings work. He definitely brought a legitimacy to what we were doing structurally.
Kent Mockler and Sherri Duprey Mockler (recently married) were an un-dying source of
support and resources from day one of this experience for me. I walked over very late
one night and told Kent and his brother Murray about this situation. He walked into his
apartment, grabbed a flashlight and we immediately headed over to the building.
In essence that sums up their continuing role in helping us, whether it was a tool we
needed or something cut down to size they were invaluable.
Patrick Miles (general contractor / sculptor) was one of the many welcome faces who just
kept showing up to help us everyday. Patrick would routinely leave us his work belt with
all the tools and he and his friends were amazing in their support and the positive energy
they brought to the site. Patrick epitomized the nature of the West Village through this
experience. People would start and end their day checking in to see how things were going
with Molly. Click here to view others who helped with the saving of Molly the cat
