Hearses carrying the crew members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots arrive in Prescott and travel along Montezuma Street Sunday afternoon. Thousands of people lined the streets, some waiting as long as eight hours to say welcome home and goodbye.
Les Stukenberg/The Daily Courier Hearses carrying the crew members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots arrive in Prescott and travel along Montezuma Street Sunday afternoon. Thousands of people lined the streets, some waiting as long as eight hours to say welcome home and goodbye.

As the procession escorting the fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots home came past the courthouse plaza in Prescott late Sunday afternoon, more than a thousand people stopped talking.

Some put their hands over their hearts, while others clapped. Children waved flags, and many cried.
