I'll remember our long talks about life and our secret elf missions to get mom 2 her Christmas gifts. I'll remember our dinners together with mom 2 at your house and the church services you allowed me to tag along with when I lived in Clearfield. I'll remember our fire trainings and fire calls we went on together in our yellow fire engine. Thank you Heb for taking me under your wing when I joined the fire service and teaching me alot in life. Also thank you for being a good friend to Dan while he had health issues and was in his car accident. We will miss your comical self and love you very much! Take care of yourself and give Emily and Gracie a big hug from me!

I not only say goodbye to a brother firefighter, but also a good friend with whom I was in tune with politically as much as anyone I’ve ever known. We did the best we could to irritate the opposition, Ed; I’ll do my best to carry on our tradition. Rest easy, brother, we’ll take it from here.
