    I spent some time at the Worcester Cold Storage site with Captain Gonzo. It is a truely touching site to see all of the items hung in memory of the tragic event that happened 4 years ago.

    Brothers, you will never be forgotten.

    I wish I was close enough to visit. I still feel the same way though just to see it on TV.

    God just needed some more firefighters.

    Sad week in Central Mass between the anniversary tomorrow and the funeral today. Lancaster about 2 towns north of Worcester, one of my co-workers was a Lieutenant with a mutual aid company that went to the scene in the aftermath.

    As some of you know, I work for the newspaper in Worcester, and while working on another problem, I saw a proof for tomorrow's paper with just the space reservation for an in-memorium ad with the name "Lucey" -- sent a chill up my spine.

    God, memories are still vivid and I was just a spectator -- can remember heading home from work that night, rounding the big curve on I-290 and the jump in my heart, "That ain't steam!" I thought to myself looking at the huge cloud settling over the eastern part of the city. Saw the building on fire, and cut across three lanes to make the exit -- man, this is gonna be a big one. Parked under the highway, grabbed my camera, half-running up I hear a cop saying there was six or seven firefighters missing, sounds serious but nah, you couldn't have lost six, no way, he must be exagerating.

    Rest in Peace...

    Our fallen Brothers....Not Forgotten

    Ar dheis Dť go raibh a anam
    ----------------------------
    Gone but Not Forgotten

    Brother when you weep for me
    Remember that it was meant to be

    Lay me down and when you leave
    Remember I'll be at your sleeve

    In every dark and choking hall
    I'll be there as you slowly crawl

    On every roof in driving snow
    I'll hold your coat and you will know

    In cellars hot with searing heat
    At windows where a gate you meet

    In closets where young children hide
    You know I'll be there at your side

    The house from which i now respond
    Is overstaffed with heroes gone

    Men who answered one last bell
    Did the job and did it well

    As firemen we understand
    That death's a card dealt in our hand

    A card we hope we never play
    But one we hold there anyway

    That card is something we ignore
    As we crawl across a weakened floor

    For we know that we're the only prayer
    For anyone that might be there

    So remember as you wipe your tears
    The joy I knew throughout the years

    As I did the job I loved to do
    I pray that thought will see you through

    Four years yet the pain of their passing is as sharp as if it were yesterday.Pete Lamb has written a "must read"commentary on our latest LODD,not really a fit for Worcester but certainly one we need to think about.Be ever vigilant.T.C.

    I remmember first hearing it on the news, I was not associated with a Fire Department then, but even then I could feel the pain for the 6 brothers that were lost. May they all rest in piece.
