    As the wife of a volunteer fireman, I can only guess what you must be going through. Everytime the pager goes off I start a litany of prayers to keep my husband & his fellow firefighter (friends) safe from harm. Thank the lord tragedy has not struck our department. Our thoughts & loving prayers go out to your families & your department. Please believe that God will be with you in the months to come, all you have to do is talk to him.

    Love & Prayers,

    The Men and Women of the Jamaica Fire Department in Jamaica, Iowa wish to offer our condolences at the loss of our brother Jim Griffith. Our heart and soul goes out to the members of the Winterset Fire Department and Jim's family. This loss has hit very close to home as several of our members know the members of Jim's family. We all live so close to one another yet miss the chances to share with each other until such a tragedy confronts us. We will miss Jim and his contributions to service and family. We pray for our friends and all other that have gone before that they find comfort. As the bell tolls a final time for Jim and he goes to answer the call we say with heavy hearts he will be missed.

    GREATER LOVE HAS NO MAN THAN THIS.THAT HE LAY DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS FRIENDS.

    On behalf of everyone with the Norwalk, IA Fire Department, I wish to extend our condolences to the Winterset Fire Dept, the family of Jim, and to his fiancee Kelley. It is a heart fealt tragedy hitting everyone in the Des Moines area too close to home. Jim will always be remembered as a dedicated firefighter to the city of Winterset and the citizens that he served. Jim's passion for firefighting has not ended. He has simply need transfered to a different station.

    Every day it seems like the headlines are reading that another firefighter has been injured or died in the line of duty. I just hope that it is someone that I don't know. However this past week it hit close to home , Winterset, Ia. Just down the rode from home.. Although I did not know John Griffith, I feel for the town of Winterset and his fellow firefighters that served with him. As an officer it is my greatest fear to lose one of my own to the animal that we try to protect so many from. So to everyone out there, please take time to remember John Griffith, The Winterset Fire Dept, and not to forget our brothers in Keokuk and one in Story City who have also fallen this year.
    God Bless.
