    Unhappy

    I would like to express my sincere condolences to the families, friends and co-workers of Kimberly Smith and Lewis MayoIII. No words can heal the tragic loss suffered by the Houston Fire Department and the loved ones of these American Heros. It is tragedy enough to suffer the loss of any firefighter during the course of a fire. It is absolutely unforgivable to have lost such brave individuals to the cowardly crime of arson. There is no punishment harsh enough for the perpitrators of this crime. Kimberly and Lewis are in my prayers and my thoughts are with thier families and the Houston Fire Department.

    Once again fate has dealt us in the fire service a tough hand to deal with.We extend to members of the firefighter's family our deepest sympathy and the mere knowing that fire fighters from all over this country are in mourning for your loss. May you find comfort in the fact that they both lived a wonderful life here on earth and that they died doing what they loved to do. They are not looking at us from another shore.

    They went to bed hoping they would sleep all night;
    When something came on, it was the light.

    Followed by tones that they would never hear;
    76's crew raced to don their gear.

    All they heard was fire, of course that's all they knew;
    They were going to save someone, it could have been you.

    The lights were so bright the sirens were so loud;
    Who ever knew they would draw such a crowd.

    Well on their way they could see the smoke;
    Even in the night that's no joke.

    As they made location the fight was going to start;
    "not this time fire, we're to smart."

    Little did they know it would take them away;
    Leaving behind comrades that were going to stay.

    When the smoke finally cleared, all you could see,
    were brothers and sisters on one knee.

    Everyone dropped their heads to say;
    please God we want them to stay.

    But he the almighty would not let us down;
    Our brother and sister would soon wear a crown.

    A halo we call it, for our angels above;
    Lewis and Kim whom we still love.

    We won't forget you, course how can that be;
    You're our two angels, whom one day we'll see.

    They went to bed hoping they would sleep all night.
    God got his wish, that's all right!

    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!!
