    It is with deep regret that we send this note to tell you how sorry we are for your loss. Please be assured that the firefighters and their families from the
    Division of Fire and E.M.S. in Lexington Ky share in the loss of these that gave their life so valiantly in the line of duty for their city. May god bring peace and understanding to the family, and friends of those that have fallen, and the community that they served.

    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.

    To lose one firefighter is a tragedy; to lose 6 in one incident is unimaginable. But the people in Mass. are having to deal with just that. We, as a public service family, must deal with instances such as this all too often. It is my hope that the families and friends of the victims know that these 6 men died doing what they lived for. As we approach the holidays, may we all remember those touched by this and other incidents, and may we all carry on the spirit and dedication that these fellow firefighters left behind. May God give each of us the strength and protection that allows us to do our duty.

    Though words cannot express anything close to our complete and heartfelt condolences to the families, and the community in Worcester, we still would like you to pass along our prayers for all. It is extremely painful for all of us. Especially having lived there for 20 years, and also having a brother-in-law, and several friends on the WFD currently, it hits very close to home. I know that community is one of the BEST in the world, and from here in Michigan I am setting up, with the local union tommorrow, as much support and help that is possible. This is such a trajedy for everyone that has heard, and is directly involved, and we hope that what we can do will help ease some of the burden and pain. I will be in touch tommorrow. God bless all........................... .............

    I am a volunteer firefighter with 26 years of service in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. I have also been an instructor with the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy for over 15 years. I know a number of Worcestor firefighters through the academy and have worked with those members who are also instructors.

    My heart has ached since hearing of this terrible tragedy. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the members of the firefighter's families and for their comrads in the Worcester Fire Department.

    I had to lower the flag at our station to half staff this morning, and did so with a very heavy heart...

    I know the prayers and best wishes of all my fellow firefighters here in the Berkshires are with the families and all our fellow firefighters in Worcester during this most difficult time.
