SANTA ANA–More than 1,400 people gathered at St. Barbara’s Catholic Church church today to say good-bye to fallen firefighter Pablo Cerda.
The church overflowed with mourners. Father Richard Kennedy told the crowd Saint Barbara was the patron saint of firefighters, a remark made poignant by the presence of hundreds of Cerda’s fellow firefighters from all over Southern California.
The ceremony concluded with a slideshow presentation featuring photos of Cerda as a baby, playing soccer for Los Amigos High School in Fountain Valley and in his firefighting gear. The slideshow was set to music by the band Coldplay.
