In honor of 2 Virginia firefighters

This past weekend Virginia lost two of their firefighters to two seperate incidents. Please keep that families of
Cecilia Turnbough
and Roy Smith, Jr. in your prayers. Roy, a member at McGaheysville Volunteer Fire Department, was 17 years old and was killed while responding to a structure fire in his personal vehicle. Cecilia had been an EMS technician for 8 years at the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department and had recently begun training to become a firefighter and became the victim of a heart attack during a routine training exercise.

Please remember all of the firefighters that gave their lives in serving their communities. There have been 99 firefighter deaths in the United States this year (2008).

Veronica,
I actually didn't know either one of the firefighters but I am currently in Fire Academy and we remembered them both on Monday night. You're family is certainly in my prayers for the loss of your sister. It is really a reason to be honored. God Bless you!
