Long Islanders who've made us proud

A Suffolk man who converted a house into a sanctuary where he cares for 300 cats, a pizza deliveryman who went far on "America's Got Talent," and a trio who rescued a father and his two children from their sinking boat were among the Long Islanders who made us proud. Read their stories and more tales of the amazing feats and acts of kindness that Long Islanders have performed in recent years. Who do we need to add to this list? Email josh.stewart@newsday.com.
