I attended a heartbreaking funeral today for a friend's husband who passed away last week. Listening to all the great things that were said about this man who was a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend and a firefighter was touching. Seeing the pain on the faces of his family and friends was heart wrenching. There were over a 100 firefighters in attendance today, and as the coffin left the church they lined the road. An honour guard, bag pipes and a fire engine led the processional through the street and the firefighters saluted the coffin as it passed. It was quite the sight.
I left today thinking that I will always say I love you to my friends and family. I will let them know how much they mean to me. I hope you do the same.
