Although our paths never crossed, your face and your story will be forever impounded in my heart and soul. You see, I was up in a room at Stonecrest Hospital when this tragic event occurred. I, a year older than you, was having my first ever relapse which would later give me the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. I was supposed to have gone to the air show that weekend with my husband (7 months) into our marriage. He was also a firefighter and me, an extrication technician on the Rescue Squad. So no officer Wall, I never got to meet you, however, you carry a dear part of my heart always and forever. Rest in peace and know that your friends and family are carrying on your memories!
