Dear Mr. Kuljis,
The family of Lyndall Bowers wishes to thank you, and the Firemen’s Relief Association, for the beautiful flag display. Dad had many, many stories of his friends and experiences at Fire Station 12 that will stay with us forever.
Please pass on our gratitude to the firefighters of Station 12 for flying this flag in his memory and presenting to the Association. You are forever in our memories.
The family of Lyndall Bowers

Please accept the enclosed donation in memory of my husband John Schindler.
The article in the Grapevine about the work party at Capt Vehling’s brought back many memories of similar times. Though the helmets are different and the turnouts have changed since John retired, he’d be as happy as I am to know that the “brotherhood” (including our gals too) remains as strong as ever.
God bless all our LAFD family.

To the members of Fire Station 107:
Thank you for your help on March 9, 2013 after my fall. I broke my hip and you took me to West Hills hospital. I have finally recovered and I really walked just last Sunday.

Please accept this donation to the WODFF in memory of my good friend Leo Dempsey. Leo was a wonderful friend and a dedicated retired man of the LAFD museums, putting many hours of labor restoring rigs on display in Hollywood and San Pedro.
He and his wife Donna were always active with their photo studio years ago taking family photos, mine included. We shall miss he and Donna dearly.

I wish to extend my sincerest gratitude and thanks for the wonderful tribute you and the Firemen’s Relief Association paid to my dad for his years of service with the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The flag and beautiful encasement with my dad’s name and years of service will be displayed with honor in my home.
The men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department have always shown support, concern, dedication and excellence in service throughout the community. It is comforting to know such a close knit group as this one looks after their own and others. I commend each and every person for their outstanding dedication.
My sincerest thanks and admiration,
