Editorial: Remembering Our Bravest

Susan Diane Murphree once said, “Firemen never die, they just burn forever in the hearts of the people whose lives they saved.”

With the passing of Westbury Fire Department ex-Chief Richard Dellacona, we lose another selfless volunteer and friend in the community.

Rich’s decades of service to Westbury are a reminder, much like the sirens and flashing lights, of the altruism many of our neighbors put on display every day.

Fires are a part of life, and fortunately, we can call on those whose lives are spent fighting them.
