A tragedy in Listowel yesterday - the deaths of 2 volunteer fire fighters. Raymond Walter and Kenneth Rea. In small towns, they sometimes have only volunteers to fight their fires. These people are highly trained but sometimes some things go wrong.
My sister Susan lives near and works in the town of Listowel and her husband, Jack, is from Atwood. Everyone knows everyone so this is going to be a loss felt by all.
They died protecting their community - they are heros.
They will surely be missed...
