"I am so sad about the death of Los Angeles Fire Dept. Firefighter Glenn Allen today...does anybody on this board know of, or know how to get in touch with his wife...I know she must need support...even if we dont know her, can you imagine if that call was for you? I cant."
But now there is a family that can't. They can no longer dismiss those thoughts as silly. They can no longer take a deep breath or check on their kids and know that everything is just fine. Life will never be the same. There is a baby about to join the family. Even though it is a joyous occasion, no matter what, it will be veiled in the fact that a Grandfather is not there to welcome his first grandchild. Life will go on, but it will never be the same. Grandpa will be a collection of stories, a helmet on the mantle, a picture, a hero.
