    Default Three years ago this evening...

    I worked late at the office and came across the Worcester Cold Storage fire on my way home. It's hard to believe it's been three years.

    It is hard to believe that 3 years have gone by since that fateful night.

    I'll be hoisting a Guinness in memory of the Worcester 6.

    May they rest in peace.

    Wow, 3 years! Doesn't seem that long, at least for me. I'm sure it feels longer for the families.

    Rest easy brothers, you will always be with us on every alarm.

    For the rest of us we have to make sure we go home at the end of the call or the end of your shift. No matter what happens, make sure this happens.

    For God's sake, keep your head down and your powder dry!

    Nice searching 201.

    Worcester 6 you will not be forgotten.

    For those of you who have not read it, I recommend 3000 Degrees by Sean Flynn. It is about the Worcester Cold Storage Fire.

    Whether for a fallen soldier,or firefighter,the saddest things to hear will always be any tribute to those that gave their lives in service.
