A Yancey County firefighter suffers from a deadly disease. He was asking God for answers as he became weaker, when his guardian angel — "St. Germain" — walked into his life. "We'd been friends, I guess, what six months?” Josh Nelson said. That's six months after Zachary St. Germain started at Newdale Volunteer Fire Department. "We just became really quick friends, had a lot in common," Nelson said. Aside from having the same job, the same birth week for their children, even the same shoes, now St. Germain and Nelson are going to have even more in common.
