|NEW AND EXCITING NEWS|
Well the family keeps growing. Now I have three granddaughers and one grandson. Not to mention we were happy to bring into our family three others who are just sweethearts. Its been a long trying period of time. Never seems like we get a day off to just relax. I am working in a Casino as a Security Supervisor and trying to keep out of trouble. That is not easy in that place.
|My family is the greatest

|A NOTE FROM A FIREMAN: It has been 32 years since I first started firefighting for the Air Force in 1969. I have seen most everything a person could see people doing to themself and others. Its important we strive to keep ourself and others from injury or even death. The "Fire Child" picture above tells it all when it comes to what a fireman feels about children of fire. Each and everyday we pray to the Almighty that we are not called to save a child that is a part of a fire. That is one wish that is repeated each and everyday. Firemen are human and yes we cry and bleed just like everyone. Some call us heroes but we are just like you, doing a job. A job that keeps us going and our hearts cold to the damage of people till at night we sit and begin to think. We all stand by each other knowing what it is like to see a child's death from fire. So please be careful. Don't make our next call one that we remember forever.|
