    It's a touching story and what love, faith and endearment these two people felt for each other. It breaks my heart that he had to die but he will be eternally with his wife and children one day. My husband and I pray every morning for our military, police and firemen - that they will be protected and know they are loved and appreciated. I pray the Lord's choicest blessings will be with her and her children, family and extended family and to all the other families also who lost their loved ones. This was a terrible, tragic event and I hope there are many prayers being said in behalf of these 19 brave and choice men who gave their lives for us.

    Thank you Sister Ashcraft for this beautiful account. Our fasts and prayers are with you, your family and the families of the other Hotshots. I loved your account of your husband’s, ‘Be Good Bracelet.” Our family lived in Prescott for 15 years, and attended the Iron Springs Ward most of the time. Our daughters Vanessa and Deanna graduated from Prescott High. We have lived in Safford for 4 ½ years. Thank you for all the service your husband gave, including saving the homes in Williamson Valley. You and your family will always be in our prayers. Love, The Adams Family

    Oh, oh! Watch out! Now come out the comments about "Why is the D-News running stories highlighting LDS people?" You know, the people who don't understand the term "local interest" story. That D-News is in Utah. That D-News is owned by the LDS Church?...The people (members and non-members) who are just looking for any excuse to complain about the church.

    I agree with Sis. Ashcraft that the survival of the bracelet is a tender mercy of Heavenly Father. It is a miracle it survived the fire. Thankfully, she has that to give her hope, peace, and something physical to hang on to as she grieves the loss of her husband and father to her children. I pray for her and her family as well as for the families of the other firefighters.

    I am always so amazed at how Heavenly Father holds us in his hand, providing those "tender mercies" that mean the world to only us. The world will never understand Juliann's feelings as she saw that bracelet. My heart is with you. What a great FHE your husband prepared for you! Always remember who you are!
