Washington State Fallen Firefighter Memorial.

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 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.

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!
