HOUSTON – The final bells rang Wednesday for four Houston firefighters who died battling a massive blaze in southwest Houston. The bell ringing symbolized the devotion that the brave souls had for their duty and represented the end of their duties here on earth and their return to heaven, where they shall await their next assignment. 

All uniformed personnel rose for Capt. Matthew Renaud, 35, who had been with the department for 11½ years; engineer operator Robert Bebee, 41, who joined the department almost 12 years ago; firefighter Robert Garner, 29, who joined the department 2½ years ago; and Anne Sullivan, 24, a probationary firefighter who had graduated in April from the Houston Fire Department Academy.
