We wish to make a contribution to the LAFD [WODFF] Fund in appreciation of the wonderful care I received by the Fire Department Station 84 emergency squad on Friday, November 14, 2014, when I had my accident.
I tripped and fell, dislocating my shoulder. The response seemed immediate. The professionalism, concern, care and treatment were superb.
The next time some city politician wishes to make points criticizing the emergency squad, please call on me as a friendly witness to share my experience.

Dear Andy and Juan,
Enclosed is a donation to LAFRA’s Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund. Each Christmas season Executive Board members of the L.A. Retired Fire and Police Association exchange a small gift at our meeting in December. Last year I decided that a more meaningful gift was a donation to the Relief’s WODFF. This year I am continuing that practice in lieu of the gift exchange with our board members with a donation to the WODFF on behalf of the L.A. Retired Fire and Police Association.
Dear Andy and Everyone at LAFRA.
Thanks for your wonderful help, once again, in supplying medical furniture. Your support is outstanding. Enclosed please find a check for a donation to the Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund.
With Sincere Appreciation,
John and Helen Sutton
I just want to write a note to you and your staff to tell how much the Malais family appreciates the Relief Association. My father was a die-hard supporter of the Relief Association while we were growing up and his time as a trustee was very dear to him. He loved that organization with every fiber of his being and encouraged me and my brother to join and support it as young members of the LAFD.
Now that he has passed, I have to take advantage of a benefit the Association provides. I get to enjoy a gift that the hard work and dedication of trustees and staff have provided for decades. How fortunate we all are!
Words of thanks aren’t enough to convey what is in our hearts. Please accept this check for the Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund . . . to be deposited in the names of all trustees, past and present, who have been the backbone of something truly remarkable.

Please accept the enclosed donation in memory of DeDe Walser, mother of Ted Nonini. She was really special.
We cannot thank you and the Firemen’s Relief Fund enough for all you did to honor our brother, Dennis Thorn, at his “celebration of life” service.
We appreciated the sharing of your traditions: ringing of the bells, the prayers of your chaplain, the bag piper, and especially the presentation of the flag. We will cherish all those memories.
We were surprised by the white tablecloths and overwhelmed by the beautiful bouquets of flowers. It was so beyond our expectations.
We are enclosing our donation and hope it helps others to honor their loved one, as you did our own.

Please accept this donation in memory of Sam Mundt, in honor of his service to the LAFD, and his service to our country during Viet Nam.
Dear Andy and Juan,
Enclosed is a donation to the L. A. Firemen’s Relief Association’s Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund in honor and memory of my friend Keith Wilson. Keith was the B/C in Battalion 13 when the “Wild Bunch” at old 64’s on the “C” shift was better known as “The Frappe Club” of which Keith was a charter member. It was rumored that we needed close supervision when we weren’t fighting fire in the hood. He kept most of us out of trouble most of the time.
