In Memory Of Anthony Valerio And Lt. Vincent Perez

With the fire that took the lives of 2 fire fighters last week in Diamond Heights, about 200 firetrucks from all over California and 6,000 people were in attendance for the memorial service today.

The trucks lined up and down Geary Street, leading to St. Mary's Cathedral. It was bittersweet seeing the stream of trucks up and down the street. It was great seeing the support from all who attended. I was pretty much in the middle of the whole service during work, so I decided to check out the fire trucks during my lunch break.

I was surprised to see a fire truck coming as far as Santa Monica. Nice seeing the support coming from all over California. It was so surreal seeing all these trucks lined up one of the busiest and main streets of San Francisco! Neat, but heartbreaking at the same time.

Trust accounts have been made for the Perez and Valerio families and donations can be sent to:

3201 California Street, San Francisco, 94118

Or condolence messages can be sent to:

Fire Station 26, 80 Digby Street, San Francisco, 94131
