  3. You coached me for 3 years… In that time you taught me life lessons. Well today I am an electrician and I’m at work in the office going over the blue prints and pre-planning the firehouse memorial for you and your brothers. I’m actually going out to the site today to get a look at the foundation. I will be working hands on from start to finish on this project. I will give it my all and more, just like you taught me. Thank you For your service Coach. Justin Hood
