Wordless Wednesday~ Fireman's Last Run

When my grandpa, who was a retired firefighter, passed away in October, they gave him one last run by the firehouse. I was very moved by this show of respect from his fellow fighters.



I'm not sure if you can see it way back there, but we had a fire truck trailing the procession with flashing lights.
