The Ultimate Sacrifice

In memory of the two firefighters from the Los Angeles County Fire Department who lost their lives today while selflessly serving the citizens of Southern California.

Praying for their families.

It is a terrible awful thing. My husband and I were just talking last night about these brave men. We pray for all of them. It hits my husband hard, because his dad was a firefighter.

So sorry to hear this news. It is a tragedy - even to die a heroe. I hope California fires become a thing of the past. And thank you to all the firefighters who continue to serve and protect. Stay safe!

I was just thinking of you the other day and wondering if your hubby was one of the firefighters fighting the fires I'm hearing about in CA. Is he?

That is so sad about those men. And their families. Firefighters are real heroes!
