Dear loved ones of John,
It has been nearly six months since this horrific tragedy. My prayer is for you to continue to endure in spite of the emotional pain that greets you each day. May you be comforted in knowing that our heavenly father knows how you feel and listens intently if you call on him and come and pray to him, he listens and will calm your heart. – Jeremiah 29:12

I used to sit outside talking to John about becoming a hotshot, he was a very warm and careing gentleman. I will miss him very much

The world is full of men, but what of men noble and true?
Can you say that you have known such a man?
These  men are far too few.
But let me tell you a a story,
About a team of men
Who left behind a legacy 
That will not be forgotten.
Highly trained, 
They  passed every test,
Chosen to fight wild fires, 
They  were called the best.
One scorching June day in 2013,
When a wildfire raged 
The Hotshots were called upon
 To battle the fiery blaze.
Armed with tools and heavy gear, 
 They set out in their prime,
No job too hard for these men,
No hill too tall to climb.
Command  was set, plans were made
To tackle the fire's wrath
But winds shifted unexpectedly
And they were trapped in the fire's path.
19 men were caught that day,
The fire drew quickly near
Though they knew they were truly trapped,
Not a one showed fear.
Dig your shelters, men came the command,
Each one knew what this meant
They dug with haste and with one final look 
They took to their tents.
Then let us look away,
For we cannot bear
What came to each one next,
Each man endured in those fiery moments,
His final Hotshot test.
And when the aid finally found the men,
The blackened landscape bore
The testimony of death everywhere,
And the men who were no more.
Oh children, your father was so brave, 
A man who did his best
In work excelled, he fought to save, 
withstanding every test.
Dear widow, may you never shed 
another tear at some unhappy strife
For you've suffered enough dread
The day your husband lost his life.
Young sweetheart, your hopes and dreams
Lay in ashes,  from the fire's wrath
May you find hope and dream once more 
Though sorrow has changed your path.
Sad mother, your beautiful son, 
your joy and your pride
Whom you succored with patient love,
has bravely lived and bravely died.
Two prayers I pray for you, the first,
Though all hope now seem dim
May you have a hope in God,
And place your trust in Him.
Second, May something good, 
Something beautiful and strong
Emerge from this tragic loss
From something that went so wrong.
Then like a Phoenix from the ashes
May these men and their noble deeds
Live, for love is stronger than death,
In the lives of those who who stop here to read.

I remember Johnny well. I've known him since I was little. His brother and I used to hang out while my sister and Johnny played soccer together. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. The world will sorely miss him.

them peace.

Deepest sympathy to the Percin family. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” John 15:13. These were special men. Young heroes who sacrificed their all to help their fellowmen. We thank john for his timeless sacrifice. Thank you, and God strengthen and keep you always.

Remember to pray for our firefighters and their families everywhere:
PRAYER FOR FIREFIGHTERS

Bless the firefighters—one and ALL;
Go before them on each call.
Protect them as they serve our kind,
Saving lives with theirs on line.

By Your mercy and Your grace,
Keep their families truly safe.
Oh, may they never suffer harm
At the sound of the alarm.

Grant them wisdom, knowledge too—
All, dear Lord, which comes from You.
Daily be their shield and guide;
Never—ever—leave their side.
Strengthen now the hands that serve
With the blessings they deserve.
