Department supported firefighter during his last days

(Continued)

The fire department supported us in one last way. The department flew the children and me and Bill’s mom to Colorado for the firefighter’s memorial with escorts. This was a truly moving event that will remain with our family forever. My understanding, this was paid for by the firefighters from a separate fund. The support and friendship of the fire department has helped us live through the saddest moments of our lives. We are forever grateful to the Salem Fire Department. Our community is lucky to have the men and women who serve on this fire department. The family wishes that all press will respect our privacy and direct any questions to the Salem Fire Department.
