My heart felt condolences go out to the members of FDMV and the family and friends of FF Kevin Townes. A loss is very difficult at any age, at any time and under any circumstances. Remember, he will always be with you, no matter what. My family will keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.

The last alarm

My father was a fireman.

He drove a big red truck

and when he'd go to work each day

he'd say "Mother wish me luck".

Then Dad would not come home again

'til some time the next day.

But the thing that bothered me the most

was the thing's some folks would say,

"A fireman's life is easy,

he eats and sleeps and plays,

and sometime's he won't fight a fire

for days and days and day's".

When I first heard these words

I was to young to understand

but I knew when people had trouble

Dad was there to lend a hand.

Then my father went to work one day

and he kissed us all goodbye

but little did we realize

that night we all would cry.

My father lost his life that night

when the floor gave way below

and I'd wondered why he'd risked his life

for someone he didn't know.

But now I truly realize

the greatest gift a man can give

is to lay his life upon the line

so that someone else might live.

So as we go from day to day

and we pray to God above

say a prayer for your local Firemen.

He may save the one's you love.

Carved in stone at the National Monument for

Fallen Firefighters Colorado Springs, Co.
