Thanks to RVFD for escort at funeral

Dear editor,

I would like to thank Rockdale Volunteer Fire Department for the escort they provided on Saturday for our late Vice President Jim Luecken’s funeral procession.

The Rockdale VFD furnished a fire department pumper to lead the funeral procession through Rockdale.

This was a great honor bestowed in Jim’s honor and was greatly appreciated by the family and Black Jack Volunteer Fire Department.

This is another sign of the great brotherhood shared among fire departments throughout our great state and the nation.

Again thank you from the community of Black Jack and Jim’s family.

Jesse Smith president, Black Jack VFD blackjackvfd@hotmail.com
