Current State takes a moment to reflect on a person who has been in the thoughts of many of us in our community this week. Lansing firefighter Dennis Rodeman is being laid to rest today, one week after he was struck and killed by a hit and run driver while collecting donations for charity.

We invited two of Rodeman's firehouse brothers to come to our studio to remember their friend. Here are fireman Charlie Stadt and Captain Steven Babcock, both public information officers for the Lansing Fire Department.
