Dear brothers and sisters the guy in the picture on my profile is my hero, teacher, and best friend in the world, and happens to be my father. He served the Tarboro Fire Dept. for 20 years as a volunteer, which I have been serving for 17 myself. The past couple of years have not been good for my dad with him losing his sight, and finding out he has cancer in which he is coming to radition treatment for. My dad means the world to me and I'm trying to construct a patch board at our station in his honor. I am blessed to still have him with me but I would love to complete this board in his honor while he is still with us so he will know how all the brothers and sisters in the emergency services pull together in his honor and dedication to the fire & ems service. Anyone that can send a patch of their station would be fantastic, but if you can't I understand being patches are hard to come by. If you can't send a patch could you all keep my dad in your prayers. You can send patches to Frankie Winslow 306 Hall Street Tarboro, North Carolina 27886. God Bless you all and may he keep his protecting hands on you and your loved ones.

I think too many people don't appreciate their parents until they are gone. I'm glad you aren't one of them. What a great thing you are doing for your dad. I would love to see a picture of your dad's board.....
