A firefighter’s tribute

Whether you love it or hate it Facebook is often a great way to connect.  Today, a friend tagged me in a post, I clicked it to discover this.

Honoring two friends who will now go with me on very run. Thank you for watching over me, giving me the ambition to have the knowledge to handle any situation and the intuition to get me through the really difficult ones. You both made a huge impact on my life and I miss you both every day. RFB-KTF!!!  With John Smith & Chris Good –Sam Terry

I wasn’t familiar with RFB & KTF… a little research shows me that these are firefighter acronyms RFB- Remember Fallen Brothers & Keep The Faith.  With John watching out for his fellow firefighting brothers, I’m sure he’ll have everybody’s backs to make sure that EGH- Everyone Goes Home.

My condolences to the family and friends of Captain Chris Good who recently passed away.

Sam, thanks so much for making sure that John will not be forgotten and will live on through the fire service!

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
