Lloyd McCulloch, 64, and Dustin Jones, 23, both of Moulton, were killed late Tuesday night when the front wall of a warehouse collapsed on top of them during a fire at Outdoor Parts and Service


MOULTON -- BB Jones sits quietly in his living room chair.
Above his head is a photo of his grandson, Dustin Jones (in picture), when he graduated from high school ROTC. Dusty Jones lived with his mother Denise Moats and a younger brother Christopher Moats. He also has an older sister, Amanda Pahman, who lives in Montgomery.
"It's not easy to give him up,'' BB Jones said. "But if you've got to die young, I guess it's better to die doing what you want, and Dusty did."
"He was helping others, that's what he did, what he loved doing.''

Wow, quite a blaze. I admire such heroes! Thanks for the blogroll, by the way. I don't know where you came from, but I sure needed that today. (In my BEST Arnold S. voice): I'll be back!
