Firefighter Close Calls MOOSE Article

1.7.2014 - UPDATE
Diane reporting that Ronnie is sleeping more & more. He isn't able to speak much, and when he does it's a low whisper. 
He seems to be getting weaker and becoming more distant. Although this is very difficult, I'm thankful he has no pain. I'm committed to keeping him comfortable and content. 





thanks to Brian Sayers
