Kansas City Fire John Mesh and Larry Leggio 10/13/15
RIP Chris Russell Longview Fire Department, Longview Pipes and Drums, Local 4331
All of the members of the Magic Dragon Pipes and Drums would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the Kansas City Fire Department with the loss of another firefighter. God speed brother we will take it from here.
Helmet in hand, tears in my eye, This shouldn't have happened, why is this our last good-bye. Heaven has called upon you today, leaving so many words left to say. Friend for so long, companion for years, Together we've shed blood, sweat and tears. You will always be my brother; you've been by my side, In bad times and good, you took them in stride. But now it's too late, for your time has come, words unspoken; I am sure everybody has some. Regrets and wishes are probably there too, but lasting forever are memories of you. I can't believe you're gone, what a horrible dream, God why do these things happen, why must we lose, Such a great man, how do you choose? Why was it him God, was it his time, why did you take this brother of mine? Now it's time for me to say Good-Bye, until we meet again in heaven to fly, As the guardian angels, of all firemen.
