Ed was my Godfather! It’s my understanding that his son, Scott, followed in his footsteps by also becomming a Firefighter. I had a taste for it myself as a part-time Firefighter EMT in Ohio. Unfortunately, Ed was lost while I was just a kid and I never got to meet him in my later years. In his rememberance and always believing him to be a hero, I proudly wore his initials on my helmet. I ended up leaving that position to become a Police Officer in Las Vegas.– Jason Rose
I was 8 years old when Ed Metters passed away. My Parents, Butch and Vickie Warden were great friends with Ed and Karen. To this day, I still remember seeing the funeral procession on tv and I remember who life was so precious!– Sean Warden
