Rest now my fallen brother
Lay soft your suffering back
Rest well and forever
Your memory shall not lack
Rest your tired hands
Wipe clean your weary brow
Rest with St. Florian
Your spirit now endowed
Rest here your breaking heart
We know you gave your all
Rest easy, you’ve done your part
You’ve answered your last call
Rest knowing that in god we sought
Oh lord, watch over another who just fell
Rest assured your troubled thought
As we ring the final bell.

Our condolences,

Christopher Tingus

Terrible blow to all concerned and who understand the dangers! Deepest sympathy to family and friends of those lost and hope a thorough investigation to capture lessons learened if any!
