Tragically, two firefighters were killed battling a tremendous fire in the Back Bay area of Boston on Wednesday:
Lt. Ed Walsh, 43, was a 9 1/2 year veteran. He was married with 2 boys, 1 girl – all under 10.
Firefighter Michael Kennedy, 33, was with the department for 6 1/2 years. He was single and a veteran of the Marine Corps.
May they rest in peace. Our sincerest condolences go out to the victims, their families, their neighbors and to the Boston Fire Department.
