    Farewell my brethren. It is a tragic day indeed when any fall in the line of duty.
    I send out special sympathies on behalf of all my fellow Karuk, Yurok and Klamath who hail from Happy Camp and the surrounding region, home of the tribes that make up my family and so many other families.
    The land is truly gods country, and these firefighters were putting their all into protecting some of our nation's finest lands.

    Default Our Fallen Family

    Rest in peace my brothers and sister

    We in the firefighting family have lost three more from our ranks in our forever ongoing battle against the beast of fire. My thoughts and prayers go to the "home" families of the fallen, may your sorrow and suffering be short but the memories last forever, and also wish of full and speedy recovery to the other two firefighters injured in the crash. Watch over us from your station upon high, and help us to win the battle.

    This is simply a response from my own person and in no such way reflects the views of any agency for which I work, or vollunteer for.

    Unhappy Gratitude

    I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Heather DePaolo when we were growing up as kids in Buffalo, N.Y. Her brother Jeremey and I were good friends and she and my little brother were good friends. It was a time in my life that I'll never forget and I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing. We knew eachother when we were young and full of dreams of what the future held; those were some of the best times of my life.

    The last time I saw Heather, it had been years since I'd seen her last. I ran into her when she was a part of Americorp in South Carolina and I remember feeling happy that I'd seen her again; I had been able to feel like a kid again. My brother had kept in touch with her more than I had and they shared a closer bond...but I always thought of her as a younger sister. I'll miss her and those innocent times we shared together all those years ago.
