    To the brave firefighters of Worcester; there are no words that can be said to feel the loss you have suffered. To the families of McGuirk, Lyons, Botherton, Lucey, Jackson and Spencer, your courage this afternoon speaking to the media was nothing short of amazing. There are many who will say that Christmas Spirit had died in your city, but don't you believe it. Your job
    is to save properites, pets and people. In progess you brand of brothers take your life is God's hands. We in New England will have you in our prayers this Christmas. Now Lift your heads up; you're our warriors and more
    lifes are left to save.


    yours truly

    On behalf of the men and women of mason County Fire District 5 in Washington State I would like to express my condolenses to the men and women of the Worcester Fire Department. Such a terrible loss for one to experience and so many at a time. Several years ago, the Seattle Fire Department, lost four firefighters and even today the mention of their names bring tears to ones eyes. I can only imagine that the loss of these six fine firefighters will be remembered for many years to come.

    To the men and women of Worcester Fire and to the family and friends of the fallen we send our deepest regrets. May god bless them and their family and friends.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the fallen Worcester Firefighters. Your challenge is the hardest as you attempt to come to terms with your loss. May the good Lord give you strength.

    When a person makes the choice to serve his fellow man by entering a public safety career, Life takes on a new meaning. We see so much pain that each good memory becomes
    priceless. Each life becomes so important to us that we are willing to offer ours to save another. This is a special "gift" that serves as our legacy.

    GOD Bless you !

    Today an example of heroics was found. It is rare that a tragedy like this happens, and a tragedy when it does. These hero's that have for the helpless fallen will never be forgotten. They are true heroes. May God bless those they leave behind, and keep them close in thier hours of need.

    At first glance it may seem these men are just normal average citizens with all of the normal, average pleasures and pains. This is only partly true. The significant difference is that when the fire alarm went off, these men ceased being average.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of our fallen brothers, and the Worchester Fire Dept.

    Today, one of the Martyrs who gave his life so freely for others was found. Firefighter Timothy P. Jackson, 51, Ladder Co. 2,was one of the first of the two two men rescue crews to go after the first two that had become disoriented. The families spoke so eloquently today. God has given them so much strength. Our mayor said yesterday, "The sun did not rise today...". No one could have said it better in any other way. At a public ceremony for the lighting of the Menorah for Chanukah, I was among several officials to speak. I was mindful that the purpose of Chanukah was a dedication or rededication of the ceremony after relief from oppression at the time. That the Festival of Lights was to commemorate the miracle of the menorah being lit for eight days when there was only enough oil for one day. In this season of lights celebrated all over the world, people would be educated about kindness and caring for others, that we must see the light, and pass it along. Here in Worcester, we have seen other types of light during the past several days. We have seen the horrible orange light of the fire, we have seen the lights from the rescue teams and the TV cameras. But last evening, as my family was coming home from a service, I looked to the sky and saw another type of light. It was made by God. It was the light from the heavens, the stars. The message was clear to me then. Through God's light, there is hope. It is with that hope that we continue to pray that the rest of our Martyrs are found, that their families and brother and sister firefighters can find closure and begin the long, arduous process of healing. God bless us all.
    Please continue to pray for the families that they have the strength to go on. There will be a memorial for the six firefighters at the Worcester Centrum on Thursday.
