On Oct. 18, I stood under cover of a large awning in Renton’s Mt. Olivet Cemetery, the murmurs of the assembled crowd so soft I could almost hear the gentle rain. From where I stood I saw a dozen plaques, each saying, “Gone But Not Forgotten These People of King County” for a different year, from 1993 to 2016. A small patch of broken ground marked where a new plaque would memorialize 180 more people. Firefighters in dress uniform stood at attention on either side of a lovely wreath in shades of purple. Just beyond, in the mist, stood a bagpiper.
