Our friend Kyle Pagerly tragically lost his life in the line of duty on June 29, 2011.  Today would have been Kyle’s 32nd birthday.  Happy birthday, Kyle!

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the Great Divide. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their likes over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
-Chief Tecumseh

Here’s a link to a photo and video gallery of Kyle’s CF moments.  Please take a moment today to think about Kyle’s family, widow Alecia and daughter Savannah, who he was so excited to know but tragically never got to meet.

Run on, Kyle.
