Fire department surprises firefighter's widow on her 100th birthday

When firefighters line up in front of your house is usually for a bad reason. Not this time.

The Norfolk Fire-Rescue department in Virginia wanted to make Jeanette Carty’s 100th birthday really special. Her husband, Joe, spent thirty years in the force serving from 1942 to 1972.

On June 22, Joe’s widow turned 100. That was a special day for Jeanette Carty and became even more memorable with the firefighters lining up in front of her house.

They offered her flowers and made her feel again as part of the fire department’s family.

2. Not quite in the same vein but my m-i-l was placed in assisted living.

 

Several of the female residents are known to pull the fire alarm because these nice young men show up.
