Glenwood Sprgs., Colo. 7/5/04 -- A memorial for the 14 firefighters who lost their lives 10 years ago will be held on the anniversary of their deaths on 7/6. It is now a text book lesson for those learning what to do and what no to do in wild land fires. For the first time smokejumper Don Mackey's children Bob,14 and Leslie Ann 15 came to see the spot where their father died. At his marker Leslie said,"I thought it would be easier to wait but it's not, I'm still emotional." Leslie leans her head on her brother's shoulder. Don's niece, Jessica Jones cover her head as it begins to rain. As they went up the 2 mile steep climb, Susan reminded Leslie and Bob to image what it was like on that hill with a heavy pack and fire/smoke racing up the hill.
