  • Help cheer up a retired firefighter and his family.

    Hi there!! I was hoping that there is a few people out there that might want to give me a little help with something i am doing for my father. My mom is sick with cancer, and as you would expect,her medical issues are overwhelming for us all right now, but my father is her primary caregiver and you can tell this is starting to take a toll on him. He is a retired Firefighter, Engineer, and Arson Investigator. He retired a few years ago, but still works for a different district as an inspector for fire codes and arson investigator. Clearly he is very dedicated to his passion, his career. He has had to take a lot of time off to care for my mom, that in itself is killing him. All the years he worked as a firefighter, I do not think he called in sick more than a total of 5 times in 30 years, that is dedication for sure!! I feel bad for my parents, this is a rough time for them and they are both struggling in their own ways. Being that my dad has had to leave work behind for a while (he still works when he can though...lol) but i know he is missing it and my children and I have been working on ways to cheer them up. My dad has a small collection of different department patches that he has collected over the years and he loves them, so we decided to help that collection grow. We brought him the first few we had found and it made his day, now that we know this is something that cheers him up, we have made it our mission to collect as many as we can. We made him a book to keep them in and everything, we just need a little help collecting them. If there is anyone out there who has an extra patch laying around that they would like to kindly donate to our cause, we would be forever grateful and appreciative. Thank you for all that you do for your communities and please,please, please do your best to stay safe and make it home to your families. Take care and god bless.
