7 firefighters from across Washington were being honored today, 2 from Seattle. It was the final memorial after a long year of various services. Jeff would have loved this service.
|Governor's conference room|
|"This table is set for the many members of our profession who are missing from our midst today..."|
|Seattle Chaplin, Seattle Chief, Axel & gramps.|
|Pipes & Drums entrance|
|Governor's final ff memorial speech after 8 years in office.|
|Very symbolic having Jeff's brothers standing above us watching over Melis & the kids during the service...|
|With every bell, the honor guard would kneel representing a fallen ff.|
|Adding Jeff's name to the flag at the Capitol.|
|I found L outside the Capitol dancing here solo a few times.|
|Even with such a long, emotional day - these little ones did great. |
It's a complete understatement to say that Melissa has done a wonderful job this last year!
