While this is an event filled with sadness, it also is one depicting great love and the ultimate sacrifice. Thursday morning I was awakened to the news that there had been a terrible house fire in which two of my friends lost their lives. Brian and Diane were siblings. Neither survived. Originally Brian, his wife Laura, and son Brandon all made it out. Brian realized his sister, who suffers from dementia, was still inside their burning home. He ran back inside to try and rescue her. He lost his life trying to save hers. He had promised to care for her after she was diagnosed with her illness at a young age. He did not want his sister to spend her life in a nursing home. He died trying to keep his promise. Diane was 56 and Brian 51. I hope to believe they both have earned their angel wings.
