    Default My Condolences

    I would like to extend my condolences in your loss.

    When I am called to duty God,
    Wherever flames may rage;
    Give me the strength to save some life,
    Whatever be its age.
    Help me embrace a little child before it is too late,
    Or save an older person from the horror of that fate.
    Enable me to be alert and hear the wekest shout;
    And quickly an effectively to put the fire out.
    I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me.
    To guard my every neighbor and protect his property.
    And if according to your will I have to lose my life;
    Please bless your protecting hand my children and my wife.

    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valle of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou are with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely gooness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23

    The members of the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department send our deepest sympathies to the families of our fallen brothers. These three men gave the greatest sacrifice possible....their lives, in the service of others. May God keep their families strong and help us all heal. The following poem was given to us at a time of need.

    "A Fireman's Wish"

    God grant me the power to defeat the fire.
    God grant me the knowledge and ability to
    defend myself and fellow firefighters
    from the fire.
    God grant me the patience to search and seek
    those trapped by the fire.
    God grant me wisdom to understand the loss
    by the fire.
    God grant me the character to mourn and help
    others through their loss.
    God grant me the sincerity and pride to give
    my all in what may be my only task to save
    And God, if you choose me to seek your
    company, grant my family and friends
    the power of healing.

    May the spirit of the Volunteer Firefighter always be in our hearts.
