A sad passing

It is with a heavy heart I say this afternoon a great friend, father, Paramedic and a great man, has passed away. C.J. Orgeron has touch many of us and will be missed. Our thought and prayers go out to Dawne and Daniel as I'm sure they will need all of our support to ake it through this tragic time in thier lives. May you rest in peace C.J. till we all meet again to mustard around the Lords table.

My heart, too, is heavy as I heard about the loss of yet another EMS brother...
C.J., to many of us whom have served the constituents and recluses of the city that care forgot---that would be Nawlins to y'all too young to remember---he was indeed a friend and a source of leadership as well as guidance. I remember his jovial smile and his ability to unite whatever watch he led with a style of comradery. According to my memory, it was he who coined the terms--"The A-team", "The Bravo Squad", The C-watch Commandoes", and the "Delta Force". As long as there are those whom remember...he will live forever. I remember the countdown of shopping days til Christmas and the term"Lil Daddy". My heart goes out to Dawne and Daniel as well as my prayers. As I write from the frozen tundra, I offer my condolenses to all whom are of heavy heart during this trying time--I am with you in spirit. "Heroes never die, but glory lasts forever"

The only time that I ever had the chance to meet CJ was at the benefit that was held for him last year. By the turn out, and just by the mood in the place, it was obvious how much of an impact that he has made on so many people. When he and Dawne were singing their duet, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. He will be remembered and cherished by all. I send my condolonces and best wishes to the family.

We're going to miss you "Rock!" I'll never forget some of the calls we rolled out on. I am very proud to have said that I knew you, as are many of us around Moss. I think that I need to correct Cesar; however, I believe that after we were named the "DELTA FORCE" we were renamed the "DUH WATCH" by him too. LOL!
