Tulsa firefighters honor a sick little boy in Texas. A 4-year-old Dallas boy named Dyrk is in the final stages of terminal cancer.  

Dyrk's dad is a firefighter, and his friends and colleagues started shooting group photos that spelled out Dyrk's name to show their support.

The photo tributes have gone international with Dyrk's name appearing on an airplane carrier at sea and in fire stations from Australia to Iraq. His name is spelled out in bunker gear, hoses, banners and even fire.

The idea spread, and the Tulsa Fire Department recently joined in.

The latest group of Tulsa Firefighters spelled out D-Y-R-K in an Oklahoma waterway just before they graduated last week from the fire academy.

All the pictures will be put in a memory book for Dyrk's family.
