Fire trucks Racing through Skyline, the fire
Chief leading the way.
Kids onBicycles, all I knew and We Loved to play.
We grew together for just a short time, but remained friends a long time.
We get older over the years, and
All strives to make it back home.
It’s never to late to see old friends you’ve always known.
Rest In Peace ice Mr. Brignano.
Ill always know by the sound of sirens, you not too far away.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Buck was always kind to me, and he was funny, and I have lots of happy memories of him at family gatherings, especially the "Dirty Santa" ones.
Please know I'm thinking about you all during this difficult time.
With deepest sympathy,
Marti
