Man… What a guy he was! From day 1 he took to me like a big brother. He had a #3 brand, I had the #3 tattoo. We joked about all the time. He had the patience of a saint helping this backwards lefty learn the ropes of the Technical Rescue Team. Always willing to share knowledge and life experiences with any of us. We shared a love of old Toyota’s and small engines that wouldn’t crank. A quick phone call with this guy was always 45 minutes and I loved every second of them.
My house was on fire or my child was entrapped I would hope they sent you to help. He and the guys at Station 3 are my second home in the department. Always have been. I was called to drive your Squad yesterday. A truck you built. Your hands knew every inch of that truck. A truck you spent countless hours showing me. Your handwriting is on the tools, in the fuel log, on the tool boxes. Every where. It was tough. We held it together. We made it. We talked about you all day. I know you felt us as we felt you.
We work in an industry that exposes us to the gift of life and the devastation of death daily. We build up these defense mechanisms to compartmentalize the trauma. We store things tucked away. Some stay buried. Others blast rage and engulf us. We forge incredible bonds with each other as only we can truly understand and process what we’ve seen. Even to toughest of warriors loose their battles. There’s simply no explanation as to why and it hurts like hell and will for a long time. What we wouldn’t give for one more phone call, hug, or joke.
One of the most heartbreaking things that can happen to a person on this earth is the death of a loved one. Everyone who is going through a difficult time as a result of this death is currently in our thoughts and prayers as we go through this difficult time. There must always be a destination at the end of each and every journey. The person’s journey on earth has sadly come to an end now that they have passed away; their time spent here is over.
