EDITOR'S NOTE: Forum Editor Matthew Von Pinnon wrote the following column four years ago this weekend. Today marks five years since his mother's death. Mother's Day will always mean something more for me. Last year, after spending the entire Mother's Day with her children, grandchildren and husband, my mom had an unexpected heart attack and died.

That boy left the hospital on Dec. 23 that year, but a nurse at the time told the firefighter's family that when people or groups visit children at the hospital, they usually came before Christmas, but not Christmas Day.

Our giant has fallen. Dennis Walaker has lost this fight. And, let’s be honest, we’re all a little shaken. Though we’ve known for months now that Fargo’s mayor and flood-fighting extraordinaire was battling kidney cancer, we never really expected him to lose this battle. We’re used to seeing him beat the odds.
