How horrible. There is no greater sacrifice that a person can make than to give up their lives serving others. My prayers are with his family and his brothers on the department.

I found another link here: http://www.wvfirefighters.com/4707.htm

He is so upset that he doesn't even want to go to work.But, knows that he has to.The plant will be without a employee/friend and needs to go on as best as they can.
I want to thank you for that link.I read it to Shawn.

We got hit with a bad snow storm yesterday and got about 2 inches of snow.Last night when Shawn was on his way into work, he said the roads were REALLY slick.I know 2 inches doesn't sound like alot,but we are in West Virginia and get black ice all the time.Plus, with the hills around here,it makes it even more dangerous to drive in that.
Chris was off on his long weekend and was due to be back at AK on Tuesday at 4pm.
Now, the whole plant will mourn his loss and have to deal with the tragety as best as they can.Not to mention the CVFD will have to do it also.........along with his family.

Those accidents are always the worse and most tragic. My thoughts are with the family and friends. It is always hard to lose a loved one in any situation.

Thanks everyone.Chris's wife went to AK today to go through his locker and clear it out.I guess she was looking for his wedding ring because he didn't have it on.They aren't allowed to wear them at work.So, he told her he kept it safe in his locker.I don't know if she found it or not though.
Just keep his family in your prayers PLEASE.

She found his ring in his locker.So far the company only after an hour had a donation for her and the kids of $300.00.Everyone is putting in on it.
Don't know when the viewing is yet.But, will post when I know more.
Thanks for all the prayers.I'm sure it's helping some.
