This is a tribute to EMT Grille and the selfless sacrifice he has given. I hope today even greater closure is brought to those he left behind.

As I perform my duty Lord

Whatever be the call,

Help to guide and keep me safe

From dangers big and small.

I want to serve and do my best

No matter what the scene,

I pledge to keep my skills refined,

My judgement quick and keen.

This calling to give of my self

Most do not understand,

But I stand ready all the time

To help my fellow man.

To have the chance to help a child

Restore his laugh with glee,

A word of thanks I might not hear,

But knowing is enough for me.

The praise of men is fine for some,

But I feel truly blessed,

That you oh Lord have chosen me

To serve in EMS!

love B.J.

A tribute in deed to evidently a fine person who did what had to be done. As Jesus said, only the best lays down their life for another...and Bille Grills certainly did. I know his family has often ask the question 'why did this have to happen to us', but we are not to questin God's work. I have two nephews that are firemen....a blessed profession. God Bless his family for many years to come...they should be proud.
