Greater Love … In Memory of the Fallen Firefighters of Arizona
Greater love has no one than this,
than to lay down one’s life for his friends
I would like to dedicate this post to those who lost their lives fighting a wild fire in Arizona on June 30, 2013.
19 brave firefighters gave their lives to protect other lives.
Let us keep their family, friends and all those who they have touched their lives in prayers.
These firefighters were part of the Prescott Fire Department’s Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite special team.
