As a member of the Willmar Fire Department I wish to express my deepest condolences to the Houston Fire Department in the lost of their fallen comrades Lewis Mayo and Kimberly Smith. Being an engine company Captain, I know that both of these fine firefighters from Engine 76 where doing what they first loved to do, and secondly what they were trained to do. We can only continue to hope and pray for the safety of our fellow firefighters.

As part of the fire service fraternity my prayers and support go out to the Houston Fire Department, it's members, and of course the families of these two fallen heros. God speed to their families and the Houston Fire Department.
