H. 'In The Line Of Duty'
In Memory of Paul Patterson.
On a cold February day in 2007, Canada's bravest stood shoulder-to-shoulder in an overwhelming show of solidarity for a fallen brother who died in the line of duty. Their silence was poignant and spoke volumes. These hundreds of paramedics, police officers, and firefighters were lined along a quiet street in rural Southwestern Ontario for the funeral procession of 30-year-old Paul Patterson. Paul was a paramedic who tragically died when the EMS vehicle he was driving in, crashed on an icy road while responding to a collision.
Paul loved his family and his job. His sense of humour was contagious. His co-workers referred to him as having 'the heart and soul of the quintessential paramedic.' Even in a profession exposed to frequent life-and-death situations, Paul's co-workers were significantly impacted by his death. By placing their own lives on the line to help others, emergency responders share a unique bond many of us can never understand. There's an innate pride and honour that comes from their chosen duty of serving and protecting, but our brave emergency responders are also deeply aware of just how ultimate the sacrifice is when one of their own, is taken in the line of duty. We would like to thank all those that work "IN THE LINE OF DUTY".
This Hosta is dedicated to all that serve, and to those who have fallen ...
