I am curious if my father (who passed in 2011) worked this one. His name was Lt. Clifford (Muley) Myers. Some time around this, my father broke his leg when and Engine backed into him at a fire. I know some of the stations he was stationed at.. 10, 11, 31, 37.....

My cousin was a firefighter he was not at the lucky street fire though. He told me about the firefighter's that was there. He knew them personally. My mother worked at the lucky street David Brothers cafeteria before that fateful night. She cried and said that it was sad that they had to die like that. My cousin Bill Hearn was a firefighter until his retirement and I loved going to I fire department with him and sitting in the big fire trucks. Thanks th the menwho gave me the memories love every one of you. God be with you all.

This is a wonderful and well written book describing this tragic fire. The respect and honor to those brave firefighters that lost their lives and those that fought this fire is indeed a most worthy memorial. Chief Max Edens has been a good friend since our high school days, and I had a chance to discuss the book with Max on a recent trip to Georgia. We live in Phoenix, Arizona, and are always interested to read about events - past or present - in our hometown's history. You did a wonderful job in conveying this tragic event in Atlanta's history, including the very vivid account of the fire, as told by the firefighters that were there, and in your tribute to those brave firefighters. May God bless you and the City of Atlanta Firefighters - past and present.

My Dad, J.T. Flynn retired from the City of Atlanta Fire Department. It was such an honor to me to be a fireman's daughter. I always said that I had more "uncles" than any girl in Atlanta. I always whisper a prayer when a fire truck passes me on the road because I know that someone's Daddy, son or husband is going out to protect and serve others. Thank you for honoring them with this book. God Bless you-

My Dad, J. T Flynn, was batallion chief at the airport when this happened, so he did not fight the fire, but I recognized the names of several men on the list. Dad passed in 2004 but we are still in touch with several of Dad's firemen brothers. I was always and will always be proud to be a fireman's daughter! Can't wait to read the book!

I began my career in 1973 with the Atlanta Fire Department and met most of those who were at this fire during my early days. I was privileged to work with many of you over the years since and it was wonderful to see those who attended the book signing and hear the stories once again! Rusty Martin

I will never forget that fire, as it was the one that claimed my brother Verlon Crider,s life. I had just learned i was pregnant with my second child, and while making plans to attend the funeral, ended up having a miscarriage, and could not be there for his wife and three small chidren..the stress was too much for all the family, and while my Mother was in Atlanta attending the funeral of her son, a letter arrived in the mail from Verlon... The last one my Mother was to receive from him....After all these years, it still brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for writing this book, and I can't wait to get mine...

I was just 5 years old when this tragedy happened but that night is forever embeded into my memory. Howard Beck was my Favorite Uncle and a truly awesome person. I spent my 5th birthday with he and my Aunt Dee. He took me to the Firestation and let me sit in the Firetruck. That was truly one of my very best birthdays ever. Thanks for writing this book and bringing their memories renewed life.

I never knew Lewis Grady or any of the other men, but appreciate so much people like these, and so many more, that risk and give their lives in service of others. I am friends with Lewis' wife, Mary, and she meets life every day with a smile and is a blessing to many people. Thank you for sharing this story.

I can't wait to read the book. I'm ordering one. I have vague memories about this event when I was young but didn't really get all the details. What an intense memory. I've always been proud of you uncle David.
