    Today a firefighter has left us, not fallen to the beast, but to the hazards that go along with the job of being a firefighter. Many people wonder why firefighters do what they do for people. I think it's because there are men and women, like Bob Crump, who love being firefighters. My condolences go to the family of Robert Crump and the Denver Fire Dept. You will be in our prayers and MAY GOD BLESS!!!!!!

    I am a firefighter with the City of Loganville in GA. I apologize from the bottom of my heart for your loss. Whenever anyone loses a brother, it is the greatest loss one can ever endure. Let it be known that you are in our prayers and thoughts as each day passes. This department has never had to face this dilema, and hope that we never will. Keep strong and remember what type of an impact this brother had on all of us whether we were apart of him or not, as well as on all those he faced and met. He has made that extreme sacrifice and will never be forgotten. God bless and the best wishes to you all.

    As members of Denver Fire Dept. Station 10, and Local 858 we were shocked to see that this incident has made Firehouse.com, let alone the numerous replies that all of you have inserted here. We wish we could thank each and every one of you personally for your kind words to us and Bob's family. The next few days are going to be very hard as we are approaching the funeral of a very good man and brave firefighter. Again, Thank You, God Bless, and please be safe!
