Every Waltham firefighter and police officer at a crash scene Tuesday offered condolences to amateur fire photographer Matt Carter.

We didn’t know Matt’s mom Carol, a longtime Waltham resident, but we join him in mourning her sudden passing on March 3. She was only 54.

Matt works for the city. In his spare time, he shoots photos and posts information on social media about firefighters and what they do.

A wake for Carol will be held on Thursday, March 12 at Brasco from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. The service is open to all.
