Today 6 years ago our oldest son William was killed while flying his water bomber over a forest fire in northern Alberta, caught in a fire tornado. I miss him more every year.
And of course a day like this looms large each year. RIP, William.

I'm sorry for your pain on this sad anniversary.
I remember when this happened. I grieved for his loss then, and I still grieve today, along with many others who care about heroes like William gone too soon. :-(
We will remember him. Say his name. William.
I am sorry for your loss. Thankful William was helping to save people from fires. A moment of silence for him as of right now. God bless. X------X
Aww, this must be so hard for you. Sniff.
Gone far too soon. That William died doing what he loved can only be a small solace. My thoughts are with you and your family this day.
I am so sorry for your heavy loss.
Gone way too early. This must be a tough day for you two. Take care.
Always a very sad day for both of you.
i'm glad that i did not miss this post, this opportunity to remember william and acknowledge his contribution and sacrifice. grief is a universal experience, it is a deeply felt emotion, unique to each of us. sending some hugs during this very sad time!!
I just started following your blog when you lost your son. I am so sorry for the loss and wish you comfort. I lost my first wife forty years ago and I still remember even when life moved on.
