    I didn't know Paul Brotherton very well as he was one of the 6 that perished
    in the fire. He was my stepfather's brother. A nice guy he was. This is the
    worst catastrophe I have ever experienced to happen in the city I grew up in.
    I only want to tell all of the families that the six firefighters who lost
    their lives doing their jobs have made it to a peaceful place and will always
    be with us in spirit.

    TO ALL MY BROTHERS OF W.F.D. AND THEIR FAMILIES- WORDS ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO
    SAY OVER THE LOSS OF OUR FELLOW BROTHERS. I HAVE THE HONOR OF KNOWING
    SEVERAL W.F.D. JAKES AND HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WORK WITH ONE OF THE FALLEN AT
    THE M.F.A. THE STRENGTH THAT THEY ARE SHOWING AT THIS DIFFICULT TIME IS
    COMMENDABLE. THE 6 OF THE BROTHERS ARE NOW ETERNALLY IN GOD'S HANDS, IN OUR
    HEARTS AND PRAYERS. GOD BLESS TO ALL OF YOU.

    My heart goes out to the families of my six fallen brothers. Your loved one
    displayed his love for the job, and for his fellow being in the line of duty.
    They became instant angels on Friday, and will never be forgotten by their
    fellow Firefighters. They will forever hold a spot in my heart, and God will
    forever watch over you and your families. My deepest sympathies to you.

    Sincerely Yours,

    I just want to say how much I am quietly praying for all of you, your
    families, and the families and children of the fallen heroes. I know
    the relationship firefighters have with their comrades and
    brothers.....It is a bond that few other professions have with their
    colleagues. When one of their own dies, the death is mourned by all
    from far and wide. Perhaps only another firefighter can truly
    understand the danger of the work and the bravery embedded in the core
    of the individuals who do it everyday without pause or question. I'm
    not sure of why things like this happen in life........and spiritual
    leaders always tell us it is not ours to question...........but I guess
    I will never understand the brutal pain that is connected to sudden and
    horrific death. Perhaps the only good that can come of this is that
    their death forces us to ponder our own mortality. When all of our
    lives are done and the work of our journey is complete........we will
    meet those who have gone before us. And if you ever lose your way in
    the work of firefighting.......just look to the heavens and your
    brothers will shine a star for you. God bless you all, in this
    difficult and painful time. Every one of us who breathes a safe night's
    sleep owes you their life.

    My older brother is a firefighter for company 3 in rochdale, along with a
    couple of his friends. These people mean the world to me. Anyways about a
    year ago after watching the movie backdraft, my brother and his friend got a
    fire call. All i could do was think what if something like that happens to
    them. It was then i decided to write a little poem. A poem about a brave
    fireman! My neighbor was one of the 6 firefighters, killed in fridays blaze.
    He was a wonderfull person, real down to earth kind of guy, did anything for
    anybody, and took pride in his work as a firefighter. He will be greatly
    missed. Also to the other families i am sorry for your loss, may you find the
    strength to get through this!

    A BRAVE FIREMAN

    The sirens ring, it's a quarter past three, they said on the scanner this is
    the biggest they'd see. The children awake and the mother now crys asking is
    this night the night her brave man dies? The screetching of tires rubbin hard
    down the road, they say the faster you are the more you are bold. The
    dispatcher now with her voice in regret wonders is this the fire all fireman
    fret? The flames so bright making night look like dawn as a firemans body
    falls still on the lawn. The cheif from the curb shouts to the men, theres no
    way in hell we're putting this fire to end. Though the bravest of fireman
    walks through the doorway so stout, for he hears the crys come from one young
    girls mouth. The roof caving in slowly and thinking nothing of he, throws the
    girl out the door to a mother on her knees. If he could save a life in the
    line of duty let it be she. So for the crying mother and firemans family and
    friends, they know in they're hearts if the fires brought him back to
    them....he'd do it all over again.

    p.s I thought this poem might help some people to see, these 6 died doing and
    being what they lived to be.

    sincerely
    Michelle Broullon

    It is with the greatest of sadness that I offer my condolences not only to
    the family members of our brothers who sacrificed their lives in an effort to
    save others, but to the members of the Worcester Fire Department. It is
    during tragic times like these that we must all pull together, set aside our
    differences, and become one family, the greatest family, on earth

    On February 14, 1995 I had to call on the Worcester Fire Department. My apartment at 160 Highland street was on fire. With the tragic events of the past few days I am forced to recall that frightening experience. If it were not for the valiant efforts of the WFD I may not be here today. It is with deep regret that I offer my most sincere condolences to the families of the WFD. That day my husband decided that he had to follow his dream and become a firefighter. He was inspired by the WFD. Our hearts go out to you....
