    If the information is true, and Grant is usually on top of this, then let me say the following:


    My deepest sympathies to the brave and courageous firefighters who lost their lives. My thoughts are with the families and the members of STLFD. May they rest in peace.

    I'll post funeral arrangements as soon as we hear. I work in St. Louis County and we'll get the information pretty quick.

    Both guys had wives and children, keep them in your prayers.
