Funeral for a Firefighter

The image of a massive American Flag flying between two fire engine, ladder-trucks is not something that someone sees very often. Two weeks ago, Richard Weber passed away at the age of eighty-one. He was a volunteer fire fighter with the Fairmount Fire Company in Lansdale for sixty-three years. This site was truly humbling: a simple but powerful tribute to another firefighter. For those readers who didn’t know Richard or who didn’t see the display of reverence for a deceased fire fighter, I will post a few photos: the Stars and Stripes flapping slowly and languidly, almost sadly; the large ladder trucks acting as saluting swords saluting towards a fallen brother; and the backdrop of the white steeple of the church.
