    My condolences to the family of Anndee Huber and to the Newcastle VFD.

    Here is the story that ran on the local news today. The circumstances of this accident are tragic.



    Associated Press


    (Newcastle-AP) -- A 16-year-old volunteer firefighter was killed when the fire truck she was riding in rolled over.

    Anndee Huber was a volunteer firefighter in Weston County. She was thrown from the truck when it veered out of control and rolled over south of Newcastle last night.

    The Highway Patrol says 46-year-old Ron J. Caillier, of Newcastle, has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence. The patrol says additional charges are pending.

    Caillier was treated for scrapes and bruises and was being held without bond in the Weston County jail.

    The patrol says neither Caillier nor Huber was wearing a seat belt.

    Unhappy With Deepest Sympathies

    My heart goes out to the family Andee Huber. Any loss of a brother or sister firefighter is too much. But the loss of a young adult in their prime, on the edge of a career is a senseless tragedy.

    My deepest prayers and thoughts go out to the family and to the department as you greive the loss of this young lady.

    May God Bless all of you!

    To the family, friends and classmates of Anndee Huber:
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences for the loss of this remarkable young lady. Though we will never know how brightly her star would have shined, with her short life on this Earth, she was able to accomplish more than many at least twice her age.
    She will be in our hearts and memories. God bless her and God bless the family.
    Sincerely,
    Art Goodrich

    As the former captain of Fire Explorer Post 1666 in Ashburn VA and as a fellow firefighter I express my deepest condolences to the family and also to the brothers in Firefighting of Anndee Huber. Anndee's family can be found across our nation and across the world; the brotherhood of firefighters is proud to have called Anndee one of its own. I want her family members to know that her death will always be remembered in my heart and in the heart of every member of my department and my post. The members of Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue salute you.

    My heartfelt condolences go out to Anndee Huber's family, friends, and Newcastle VFD. This is such an inexcusable loss...she never even had the chance to make it where she wanted to be. When I was 16 I too was in an Explorer post and it meant everything to me. Its hard to lose a sister because there are not a whole lot of us out there...especially short ones =o). May God bless her and everyone who knew her, and allow them to make it through this terrible time.

    I totally agree with captstanm1: "Any loss of a brother or sister firefighter is too much. But the loss of a young adult in their prime, on the edge of a career is a senseless tragedy."

    My heart goes out to the Andee's family and firehouse family. I wish I could say something to make this time easier for you, but there really isn't anything. My son was a jr firefighter from Brookhaven Pa, who was hit by a car on his way to a call. His death was a year ago but seems like yesterday. The death of someone so young, someone who was doing good, does not seem fair. I am so sorry you have to go through this. Andee sounds like a beautiful young woman. Be proud of her!

    It is a terrible tragedy to lose a family member especially when they are just getting a good start in life.
    Sounds like she was a real go getter.

    Our hearts were saddened to learn of another fire fighter's death in the line of duty...especially one so young with so much promise and life yet to live. Our prayers are with all who knew Anndee, especially those who served with her on the Department.
    To Anndee's family, my deepest condolences to you. You have a nation of fire families to mourn with you at your loss. None more dedicated than those in your own town. Don't ever be shy about asking them for help, or any of the rest of us, no matter where you travel. You will always have our un-dying respect and we will not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice. May God Bless you and your family.

    For anyone from Newcastle Fire, family and friends that read this, in all sincerity my heart goes out to your loss. I was overcome with a sense of loss and the brotherhood in firefighting was made even stronger for me. Rest in the Lord and know that He is in control.

    These things are hard to accept, but God is holy and He knows why this happened. Trust that He will sustain you through all this because He has promised that He will. It is impossible for God to go back on His promise, you just have to let Him do His work. Give your anxiety to Him who created the heavens and the earth and is in control of the entire universe. May His peace that surpasses understanding be with you always.

    Because of Him,
    Mike
