Our oldest daughter Karen graduated from the Chicago Fire Academy this past Monday as a Paramedic.  Bob and I are very proud of her.  She has been a paramedic/Supervisor on a private ambulance for 10 years. She has been on the CFD waiting list for about that long as well.  Here are some pictures after the ceremony.  It was held in the Grand Ballroom on Navy Pier.  The same place Karen’s husband graduated 2 years before as a Chicago Police Officer.  The CFD Fire Boat and CFD helicopter where out there as well.  She is on her first 24 hr shift today.   My brother is a retired engineer from the CFD that is him in the picture with Karen.

Congratulations to your daughter, Cathy.  I know you are proud parents.  As a former firefighter in Houston, Texas, I am also proud of her.  Incidentally, my goal was to become a paramedic there, but we moved back to Alaska, so that didn’t happen.  Your have a family dedicated to public service.   Good on ya.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.  Just got home from having dinner with her at Gino’s East in Rosemont. Same place I took Eric (Virginian) and Don & Barb (ExPat).  Don, FYI they moved down the street.  It was just Karen an I.  Bob is in Dallas and Katie was working.

Congratulations to the proud parents and to Karen.

May she always be safe as she helps people in need of her skills and compassion, at times which can be the worst moments in their lives.
