Sorry to read about your father in law.
Jesus Loves ALL First Responders.
You gotta be pretty special to be willing to
lay down your life for people you don't even know.

You may have read my back-story at some point.
I literally grew up in an industrial park,
across the street from the chemical factory
that later became the "Super-Fund Site"
responsible for poisoning my entire neighbourhood
including all my fellow students and teachers
who went to the same Grammar School. frown

I know what you mean about being forever effected
by "these things"... I still jump outta'-my-skin when
ever I hear Factory Fire-Klaxtons sound, no matter
where I've lived ever since. eek
