    Another brother has fallen. This has been a year of great loss to the brotherhood of men and women who serve with great pleasure to the communities of our nation. No words can be said that will take the place of our lost brothers. The only thing that can be offered is the support of the brotherhood to the the familes of our fallen brothers. We of the City of Commerce, Texas Fire Department would like to express our thoughts and condolences to the families of lost brothers of the Houston Fire Dept. Lewis Mayo III and Kimberly Smith, and to the Houston Fire Dept. on the lost of two that will be so missed by the brothers.

    I was born and raised in Alabama and I thank you on behalf of all
    Houston Firefighters. It is without a doubt one of the most painful and
    "lost" feelings I have ever had to dael with. Please watch over each
    other and never have to pull "one of your own" from the reamains of what
    used to be a building. Thanks for your prayers!!

    All of us at Fairfax/Madison Place Fire-Rescue would like to express our most profound sympathy for the loss of our brother and sister in Houston. Our every thoughts will be with the families, friends and fellow firefighters. God bless you all...

    "For those who suffer,
    and those who cry this night,
    give them repose, Lord;
    a pause in their burdens.
    Let there be minutes
    where they experience peace,
    not of man
    but of angels.
    Love them, Lord,
    when others cannot.
    Hold them, Lord,
    when we fail with human arms.
    Hear their prayers
    and give them the ability to hear You back
    in whatever language they best understand."

    Houston Fire Department Station 51 C-Shift District 10 would like to send our deepest sympathies to the Mayo and Smith families. This district will never be the same without them and they will be sorely missed, however we are all better men for having known them. We at 51's have had the priveledge of having both of these firefighters be a part of our crew and no better firefighters exist. WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU BOTH.
    And to all the firefighters from the Houston area and across the country we offer our sincerest thanks for the incredible support you are showing. It means so much to us during this time of sorrow. A special thanks to the Dallas Fire Department who is coming to man this Station while we attend the Memorial service. We are much indebted to you all.
    "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will gaurd your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Phil. 4:7

    As fellow Firefighters from the Houston suburbs, we are more than willing to do anything we can to assist the city in this time of grief. Those of us that are off duty on Friday are honored that the City is allowing us to cover partial shifts so that as many HFD personnel possible can attend the Memorial Service. We all mourn the loss of one of our own and all of our off-duty firefighters have volunteered to work for HFD personnel and will be manning stations 20 and 23. We hope this can provide some relief during this unfortunate time. Our prayers are with all at this time.

    Louis and Kim shall always be remembered...
    Deepest condolences to both families and HFD for their loss
    Remember Me

    Remember me, When I am gone.
    Remember me, when comes the dawn.
    When Smoke and ashes fill the sky,
    Remember that it's us that try.

    The tones go out, we hear the call,
    "Another one's burning, get on the ball!"
    We roll like thunder into the night,
    We will not go down, without a fight.

    With every sound of the alarm,
    I must try to keep others, safe from harm.
    And if with this call, I should lose my life,
    Please notify my kids and wife.

    Let them know I did my best,
    and remember me fondly, when I'm laid to rest.
    For my life was givin, for those I tried to save,
    To try to keep others, safe from the grave.

    'Twas my life I chose to give,
    I did it so that others might live.

    Remember me..........

    I dedicate this to all the firefighters I have known, and will know in my lifetime..... living and deceased. Let them all live in our hearts, and know they are a very special breed. We will remember..........

    Karan Porter EMT-B
