I want to send a heartfelt thank you to the Baltimore County police officers and the many fire professionals, who responded to the house fire in the 5800 Block of Ivy League Drive, College Hills, on March 20. We experienced their true professionalism that night when we were roused out of bed by the police, warning us to get out of our home. I am disabled. Several officers made sure my brother and I got down the stairs and out safely with our pet cat. They moved my vehicle out of our driveway to a safe location, then later brought it closer so that I could sit down inside with our pet.  My neighbor's home was fully engulfed in flames.

Troy Douglas no longer sits at his desk at William Paca Elementary. The third-grader's classmates and teachers have decorated it with cards and balloons to preserve his memory. The 8-year-old no longer walks past the house on Lakewood Avenue that burst into flames last week as he made his way home from school, leaving Troy buried under bricks and debris. A wreath of blue flowers - his favorite color - hangs from the chain-link fence surrounding the ruined structure. At Troy's funeral Wednesday, mourners said that though the bright-eyed boy is gone, Southeast Baltimore will not forget the smile and sense of humor that brought his community together in both life and death.
