Westfield Firefighter Dan Maglione with wife Katie
The steps to heaven that you will climb
Are guarded on each side,
By the men and women that have gone before
That wore a uniform with pride.
The public lost a servant today,
A fireman, one of Westfield's own,
But a family lost even more today,
They may feel they're all alone.
If words could soothe a mourning heart,
And wipe away some tears,
They would be the words, spoken from Dan's heart,
Into his family's ears.
It's a falling leaf, the drop of rain,
The breeze on a windy day,
Each will carry a message from Dan
In words he cannot say.
He's there, he's watching, as time goes by,
He made the the most of life,
A father's love to his two beautiful girls,
A dedicated husband to his wife.
Dan always know, you will not be forgotten,
Your legacy will live on,
Your smile, your kindness, your helping hand,
Remembered although you're gone.
May You Rest In Peace Dan.
