Always a Hero

This is a picture of my grandfather, Arthur Joseph Bolduc, Sr., with my grandmother, Maybelle, and my Aunt Connie, beating the heat on a summer day circa 1935. I love seeing the swimsuit fashion from that era!

I never knew my grandfather in person, but felt as if I did, hearing the many stories that kept his spirit alive along with our family’s picture sharing.

He was a hero, a fireman who died young when he was only 48. His lungs were damaged while he was battling an industrial fire, and he was pronounced dead on the scene. His heart began beating again several minutes later while the EMTs worked their magic. He had two more precious weeks with his family before he succumbed to his injuries.

First responders will always be my heroes!
