THIS IS DEDICATED TO MY WIFE. WITHOUT HER LOVE AND SUPPORT I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BE A VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER.

THE TABLE'S SET, THE MEAL'S PREPARED, OUR QUESTS WILL SOON ARRIVE. MY HUSBAND ONCE MORE DISAPPEARS WITH A HOPE OF KEEPING A CHILD ALIVE. WHILE WAITING AT HOME AGAIN ALONE, OUR PLANS HAVING GONE AWRY. MY FIRST IMPULSE IS MERELY TO SIT DOWN AND CRY. BUT SOON AGAIN I REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF MY LIFE WHEN AGREED TO TAKE ON THE DUTIES OF BEING A FIREMAN'S WIFE. WHILE THERE ARE MANY DRAWBACKS, I'LL TAKE THEM IN MY STRIDE. THE GUSTING WINDS AND RAGING FLAMES MAY BE HIS FINAL FATE, BUT WITH GOD'S HELP I CAN REMAIN MY FIREMAN'S FAITHFUL MATE.

i understand you feelings here, as i am also a volunteer. it would be impossiable to do what we do without the support at home that we get. perhaps i have a solution for you. get your wife involved with the department. my wife and i are both volunteers, and there are many husband/wife members on our department. i will be sure to direct my wife to this post. God bless and stay safe.

Several years ago, I got a plaque engraved with this poem for my wife. She loves it!
