    In a moment's notice within the blink of an eye Stephanie Roper unexpectedly passed away. Stephanie Roper is the wife of our MDFR brother Jeffery Roper who works on R 78 C Shift. I was fortunate enough to have met Stephanie, and let me just say she was a very special person, a great mother, and a dedicated and caring wife.

    Brotherhood as defined by Merriam-Webster; feelings of friendship, support, and understanding between people: a group or organization of people who have the same interests, jobs, etc. In the fire service, we know it means so much more. Brotherhood means that we are there for one another. It means we have each other’s backs.
