My sympathy goes to the family of Mr. Goodwin, however as a past affiliate of the department I think it's important to remember that everyone's a "hero" upon their passing. VVFD has needed some drastic changes for some time now and perhaps this will be the opportunity for growth under a new leadership team. It easy to become lost in our own visions as opposed to the one that's best for the entity as a whole. I hope that vision can be restored for the citizens of Vienna and the growth and continued success of the VVFD.

What a loss - not only the personal and professional losses of three respected volunteer fire chiefs in the past year, but the loss of "institutional memory" in the affected communities. Let's hope their successors can fill these big shoes!
