    Now in Victoria, BC. I'm from beautiful Jasper Alberta in the heart of the Can. Rockies - will always be an Albertan at heart!


    My deepest sympathies to the Stone Park Fire Department and Morris Fire Protection & Ambulance District, as well as Steve's family and friends for their sad loss.

    Rest peacefully in the arms of the angels, Tiny.

    Just a quick update. Sunday was the wake and the layout was absolutely perfect. The funeral home did a terrific job a recreating Tiny down to his **** eating grin. The FD walkthrough was well over 600 brothers & sisters from as far as FDNY (thanks Nate).

    Tomorrow is the funeral and will be from the firehouse to the cemetery. Please feel free to attend to show him off well. For those of you that attended today and can't make tomorrow, thank you from all of us, it was appreciated.
