The West Helena Fire Dept., AR, lost 3 firefighters in a packaging plant explosion on May 8, 1997. My husband is a WH firefighter, and my dad is a retired firefighter. The day of the explosion is forever chiseled in our memories, and we miss our lost friends even today. My heartfelt EMPATHY goes out to not only the firefighter's immediate families, but their firefighting family, as well. God bless each of you.
