The photo at right was posted to the Glendale, Ariz. Fire Department’s Facebook page.

It shows the widow of Sean Misner, one of the 19  Granite Mountain Hotshots who perished when a wildfire turned out of control, driving her late husband’s ashes to his hometown of San Ynez, Calif, in Misner’s truck.

The department says regional fire departments placed personnel  at every overpass she drove under in tribute to Misner’s sacrifice.

Distance from Glendale to San Ynez: approximately 500 miles.

Chills.
