Even after Ada Brown left the Tierra Linda Volunteer Fire Department in 2009 to focus on motherhood, it seemed a higher power still needed her to be with people in their darkest moments.

Last summer, Brown, a volunteer emergency chaplain, happened upon the scene of a fatal wreck on the interstate toward Comfort and ministered to the mothers whose children were killed, later officiating a funeral in San Antonio. A few months before that she was at the aftermath of another deadly wreck on the interstate, and she recalled another incident in 2006 in which she provided medical assistance to an 18-year-old trapped in a crashed vehicle, among other examples she shared.
