OK, so they're together, but not like together together...
But -- and there's always a but -- the pair

This is such an awesome thing!
Tragically, NYPD officer Rafael Ramos was executed this weekend while on patrol in his car — and he left behind two sons. 13-year-old Jaden Ramos is still in middle school and Justin attends Bowdoin College in Maine.
Luckily, New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner started the Yankee Silver Shield Foundation in 1982, which pays for the education of children who lost a parent in the line of duty. So, both of the boys will still get to have the best schooling possible.
The other officer, Wenjian Liu, was a newlywed who had no children.
Steinbrenner started the foundation when he saw an officer's funeral, with four children following their mom as they received a folded flag at the funeral. He told his friend, Olympian Jim Fuchs, that they were going to take care of the kids.
Since then, the foundation has helped hundreds of children, including over 700 who lost a parent in the 9/11 attacks.
If you'd like to help the foundation, you can HERE.
We're just glad to hear that some organization is doing something to help this family.
