ProJo Updates



In our seven-day world, it's often easy to move on to the next breaking newsflash.  If this has happened to you, this page will rivet you back to the enormity of this, and all tragedies... including our troops in theaters of war.  There are not just lives lost... there is VITAL LIFE multiplied by the number killed that is lost.  As one views the pictures, reads the stories, and sees the couples -- even married couples -- one can't help but to be reminded of ALL THE VITAL LIFE that was consumed by The Station Fire.
There are many tributes and memorials.  On this page, I have placed several tributes by the media, but by no means all the tributes given.  Obviously, the ones below seem to be duplicates, but the text is often different.  For this reason, all are included.
