Thanks, SHFAD for recognition


Fire Chief Mike Beaver, Doug Emmert, Guy Smith and staff, I should have written sooner. I guess there is no time limit for saying thanks.

In February, I received an invitation to attend the Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District 2011 Awards Banquet, held March 12. I was very surprised to receive the invitation. Of course, Jim would have been very happy as well.

While at the dinner, I was talking to Theresa Mahler, wife of City Councilor Greg Mahler. She said, “Hiromi, you are being asked to go up to the front.” There Emmert gave me the Keith Gabriel Humanitarian Award in honor of my deceased husband, James Bean.

I would like to say thank you very much for honoring Jim with this plaque. It was very thoughtful and generous.

Hiromi Bean
