    Unhappy LODD: Summit Twp, MI

    Summit Township Fire Capt. Scott Thornton died today after he was trapped in a dwelling fire. Three other firefighters were treated for injuries.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Capt. Thornton's family and to the Brothers and Sisters of the Summit Twp FD.

    Godspeed Brother...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I never dreamed it would be me,
    my name for all eternity,
    recorded here at this hallowplace,
    alas, my name, no more my face.
    "In the line of duty," I hear them say:
    my family now the price to pay.
    My folded flag stained with their tears;
    we only had those few short years.
    The badge no longer on my chest,
    I sleep now in eternal rest.
    My sword I pass to those behind,
    and pray they keep this thought in mind.
    I never dreamed it would be me,
    and with heavy heart and bended knee,
    I ask for all here from the past:
    Dear God, let my name be the last.

    -unknown-

    Rest in peace for sure. My condolences go out to all involved.

    I actually applied to Summit last summer. It definitely hits home.
