So other's may live

11/7/74 - 8/24/09





"When I am called to duty, God, whenever flames may rage;




Give me strength to save some life, whatever be its age.



Help me embrace a little child before it is too late



Or save an older person from the horror of that fate.



Enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout,



And quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.



I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me,



To guard my every neighbor and protect his property.



And if, according to my fate, I am to lose my life;



Please bless with your protecting hand

my children and my wife."


he risked his life "so other's may live"

we miss you uncle "simeon" <3




* Today makes it a yr. since the tragic death of fire fighter  Jon & Chip may you both rest in heaven. *
