So much to say with a thousand places to start…like at the table after just 5 months of marriage when Brent informed me he was going to apply to the Pensacola fire dept. and I was sure I was going to choke on my food. Or the day I PROUDLY watched him get his badge as one of only two white firefighters hired in Pensacola in over 5 years. How about the terrible day when Brent was sent home from overtime at the firehall because another firefighter had accidentally been skipped-and the horrible call that he had been killed in a fire overnight. It could have been Brent that night. Reality check. Emotional funeral. Back to work. Lots of prayer.
Then there were the lost days. The move to KS and no available work as a firefighter. Where to go and what to do.
Finally we come to Cleveland. I watched as Brent came alive again back HOME as a firefighter. We are only ONE story but all firefighters have a story. It’s in their blood. It’s a special bond. And I’m proud to be the wife of a true hero.
Enjoy a glimpse of what the spouses and children of these heroes see everyday…always with the whispered prayer that there will be another day to say “I love you.”
