The firefighter was my son, my favorite son. He wanted to be a firefighter for as long as I can remember. As a little boy Josh put on his snow pants, boots, plastic firemen’s hat,(this was before they had cool children’s firemen’s gear),reminding us of the “stop, drop, and roll,” checking outlets, making sure handles on pans were turned inward, making sure we had an escape plan in case of fire, and batteries in smoke alarms to be sure all was “up to code.” All he ever wanted to be was a firefighter. I thank God he was able to follow his dream, his heart’s desire. He did what he loved and died doing what he was called to do – serving his community. He loved God and loved his family – all his family. He would do anything for anyone. My heart aches for hi everyday but knowing he is with his Lord and savior and I will see him again brings comfort.
