    Thank you...

    My SIL is a Battalion Chief there. It's hit everyone really hard.

    Condolences. I think it is tougher now because people can't have a proper memorial service.

    Prayers for him and his family.

    On a side note, those in positions of leadership in law enforcement could take a lesson from how this fire department ( and others) deal with member suicide; they honor theirs who have fallen to the darkness, while most law enforcement agencies will essentially pretend that the fallen officer never existed.

    Whether the Blue Line, Red Line, or White Line, we are all one team. My condolences to the family and the brother/sisters he worked with.
