Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Assn.
Besides his family, there were two things my husband, Ed Holland, was proud of –his service in the Navy and being a member of the LAFD. Upon his death I realized why. The military gave him a fitting memorial and on call to the Relief Assn. took care of many of the needs we had during his illness, followed by instant help when he passed. Likewise, as an LAFD widow, I feel a great deal of comfort knowing if I need assistance in the future I will receive the same excellent response.
Special thanks go to Jim Dolan and his staff. Our son Bill, who is currently an engineer at FS 102, would make a call and the next Day whatever we needed appeared at our front door. They work like a well-oiled machine, but one with a very big heart.
Please accept this donation in memory of Edward M. Holland – husband, father and grandfather.

Dear LA Firemen’s Relief Assn:
Having received numerous “out of town” appeals for donations, we asked our local LAFD for advice. We were directed to offer a donation to you – this made good sense to us! Please use the enclosed check as you find appropriate. Thank you for your diligence.

Dear Relief Association –
The enclosed donation is in honor of Gene Farrington and Tom Laski, whom I worked with in the Fire Prevention Bureau. Their work ethic and dedication to the job was exemplary. I owe them a debt of gratitude for their kindness and support; they were a credit to the Department.

To whom it may concern,
This donation comes to you as it was dear to my aunt’s – DeDe Walser – heart. My cousin Ted Nonini will also be pleased. She was a great person that could always make a crowd laugh. And she will be missed.
I am sending this in the memory of Jerry Johns. He was a determined competitor in all he did and was the same in his battle with his health. I enjoyed his friendship on and off the job. Mary and I wish the family and especially his devoted wife Jill lots of peace.
