    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........................................

    My heart goes out to the family and friends of the six brave firefighters in
    Worcester. As a former volunteer firefighter I can only begin to imagine the
    pain and anguish that they are going through. My prayers are with them as
    they deal with the loss of their loved ones.

    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.

It is such a tragic loss to loose a fellow brother. We lost one of our own in the beginning of October to a traffic accident. His death was difficult enough to handle not to mention how difficult handling the death of 6 firefighters must be. Again, our condolences and prayers are with all of you. May God give everyone the strength to get through this and to be the best We ALL can be.
