To the firefighters of Worcester Fire Department: Please accept my sympathy as you mourn the loss of your brave comrades. Their ultimate sacrifice brings both sadness and pride. I will never see another station or firetruck and not be reminded of your bravery and selflessness. May God's special blessings be upon you in the days ahead giving you strength and faith. Take comfort that your friends have found the unspeakable joy of heaven.
