“Just a couple of years into my volunteer emergency services career, I responded to a rollover with possibility of a pinned victim. Feeling my cousin’s last two heartbeats of life almost ended my new career. It was well over a year before I connected with Peggy Sweeney. I attended a seminar [Grieving Behind the Badge] she was doing. Some calls can bring back the anger, but I know that Peggy is only a phone call, message or e-mail away”.
