There was a great turnout last night and we really appreciate you coming out. There was a steady flow of people from beginning to end. Broussards felt like around 500 people were there. Dad would have enjoyed visiting with all of you. The flowers were also beautiful. We especially liked seeing his fire uniform. We had never seen any of that. Last night during the vigil Gary said my dad never boasted and that is true. I never even knew he was captain until I saw his helmet. I also never knew about most of the award he won. To us he was just dad and he never talked about all of that stuff.
Also, we found the link to the article about my dad and I thought I'd share it with you. Just copy and paste this into your browser.
