him as “air recon” number of times during brush fi res. I also used him in my prescription burning operations many times over the years when I was the Vegetation Management Coordinator. He could always be counted to hit the mark in these operations. Please accept the enclosed donation to the

Dear John and our LAFrA Family, How can we begin to thank you for all the

love and support you have given our family over this past, diffi cult year? We are so grateful for everything you have done and continue to do for us. Our road would have been much harder and at times impossible to travel without your help. Thank you also for the lovely fl oral spray you sent to mark the anniversary of Glenn’s passing. It reminded us all that we are never alone and help is only a phone call away.

With grateful hearts,

Melanie Allen, Brandon, Rebecca and Nathaniel McPhie North Hills, CA

Dear LAFrA, Thank you all so much for all the help you have

extended to us over the past months. I knew I was in good hands when Doak Smith showed up to help with anything we needed. John was so proud of being an L.A. City Fireman and always told me that they would be there to help – and you were. The memorial for John on the 12th was amazing

and the love we felt from everyone will be with us always. A special thanks to the LAFD chaplain and Jim Dolan, Andy Kuljis, Frank Borden, Doak Smith, Jim Finn and Mike Ketaily. Words cannot convey the feelings of appreciation and love we have for all of you. Thank you to everyone who came to the

memorial. John had to be smiling that morning knowing so many people cared. We will never forget it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
