Please pray

for the souls of two fire fighters, Justin Monroe, 19, and Victor Isler, 40, who died today in a ferocious five alarm fire that has completely destroyed the Salisbury Lumber Mill.

Saint Florian please pray for all who are still fighting this fire and may all the Saints and Angels in heaven join us in prayer for the souls so recently departed and for their families.

The words to TAPS, the melody typically played at a fallen hero's burial.

Day is done
Gone the sun
From the Lakes
From the hills
From the sky.
All is well,
safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light
Dims the sight
And a star
Gems the sky,
Gleaming bright
From afar,
Drawing nigh,
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise,
For our days,
Neath the sun,
Neath the stars,
Neath the sky,
As we go,
This we know,
God is nigh.
