In Memoriam:

To: Al "Batman" Harrison

I'll never forget the story you told me of the little boy you flew who was so sick and looked up at you and asked, "are you a super hero?" You of coarse smiled and said no. But then the little boy smiled back and said, "you are to me"

I thank God everyday that I got to have a real superhero for a daddy. I know your still watching the skies like always.
I love you with all my heart.

-  Amber Harrison

Ryan Duke and Al Harrison,

"Wow, what a beautiful day. God I love this job" - Ryan Duke.
You are so missed brother. I think of you every day. I know one day we will fly together again ...

-  Mike Eccard RN/EMT-P

Ryan Duke, Flight Nurse and Al Harrison, Pilot,

Oh, my Brothers,
I wish I could've told you one more time how much you meant to me and what a tremendous honor it was flying with you. You will be missed more than words can say. Peace be with your families and our work family. We will never forget your sacrifice. Mike, I can't wait to hug you.

-  Angela Woodard, RN, EM7 crew

The crew

True heros!  God be with their families!

To: Ryan Duke, Flight Nurse
Al Harrison, Pilot
And the Flight Paramedic who survived.

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee
No 412 squadron, RCAF
Killed 11 December 1941
