Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

About Me

My photo
I am married and have seven children and twenty grandchildren. I retired January 1, 2010 after working 39+ years for the Forest Service...NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAS BEGUN!

Wednesday, May 5, 2010


Sgt. Aguilar enroute to his final resting place in American Fork, Utah. He was one of our Sheriff's Office Deputies. He was killed when he was hit by another car while he was helping with an accident. He turned 36 the day before he was killed. He leaves behind a wife and five children ages 1-15. My heart goes out to his family. I can't look at the procession photos without having tears in my eyes. There wasn't a dry eye on the funeral procession route. People lined the street and waved American flags as the procession passed.

Still young. My heart goes out for the family.

I hope the Lord has a special place for all Policemen and Firemen in heaven. They do a great service even if they do get paid for it.

Dee Ice Hole said...

Nene, they do not get paid anywhere near enough, neither does our military, and neither do our teachers, and that is a shame.

Franco, I can not believe it has almost been a whole year since you were called home on that tragic night. I miss you more and more eveyday. I think of you always. I am praying for the beautiful wife and five children that were left behind. I am being the best friend I can be to your oldest daughter. RIP.
