As the wife of a FW firefighter, I am extremely grieved by these losses - career or volunteer - they all gave their lives for what they believed in and loved to do.
I am heartsick thinking of the Supreme Sacrifice these firefighter-wives have made and the words they heard that no one wants to hear or can comprehend hearing.
I must say that from the different things I know of these FW firemen (and I am sure the other firefighter, too), and the things I have read in the papers, heard on the news, they were truly exceptional human beings, truly wonderful Christian men, husbands, fathers and givers. Their wives are honored as having been chosen in the big scheme of things to have been these men's partners and the mothers of their children.
This has opened my heart, love, appreciation and respect further than ever and reminded me that I have been chosen for this role also and I must strive to do my husband and this role justice.
With sincerest sympathy...

My father is a firefighter for the city of Arlington, TX and knew Lt. Collins from the Air Force Reserve. My family grieves for these three fallen heroes and the pain their families must suffer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and we know that Brian, Gary and Phillip are with God and are smiling down on us all.
God bless those who risk their lives for others.

Our Lord God has called home three of His son's. Though are brother's are gone, they are not forgotten. The supreme sacrifice inwhich they had to face was not alone, but instead they went as a team with our Chief of the Heaven's as they worked so valiantly trying to save our Lords home. I pray for their comrade's and families. Though their sacrifice is sad, they are now with eternal joy with our Heavenly Father. Amen

To the family and friends of MSgt Brian Collins:
Those of us in the fire service all know that every day may be our last. We are all willing to lay down our lives in the line of duty, yet this does not make the pain of losing a brother fireman any easier on any of us. MSgt Collins was a father, a husband, a fireman, and a member of the United States Air Force Reserve. His loss will be felt by many, and although we did not know him here at Malmstrom AFB Fire Dept., it seems obvious that he was a good man and that he will be sorely missed. From all of us at MAFB FD, we respectfully send our condolences...

I send my deepest regrets to the families and the firefighters that work with these brave souls who lost their lives trying to do what few others will. The fire service is at a great loss over these men that gave their lives in the service of others. A hero is no braver than anyone else he is just braver 5 min longer...

I was appalled to read the article concerning the pension benefits for Phillip Dean and Brian Collins. There should be no question, these heroes who gave their all, deserve better than having politicians fight
over death benefits. All fire fighters and the citizens of Fort Worth should let the Mayor, the City Council and the city's retirement board, know we stand with our fire fighters and want no part in short changing the widows and children these men left behind.
These brave Americans did their duty and paid the price. The City of Fort Worth should step up to the plate and do what is right!

To the families of the courageous firefighters, I just wanted to let ya'll know that my heart and prayers go out to you. Although there was a tragic end to their wonderful lives, please find comfort in knowing they have passed on to the most beautiful place, and will always be there to watch over you. I was very sorry to hear about the decision the board made regarding pension. I guess they weren't big enough to step up and put themselves in your shoes. I am sure that if that had been the case, and the tables had been turned, they wouldn't have been so quick to make the decision they made.
