PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Not all the houses have been rebuilt. Not all the people have moved back home and not all the damage has been repaired.

But one year after the town of Yarnell was hit by what would become the deadliest wildfire in Arizona history, residents say the town is steadily pulling itself back together.

Wade Parker, one of the youngest of the Yarnell 19, was a serious fan of the Boston Red Sox.

After his death, the team showed the Parker family that they were fans of Wade.

The team invited the family to a game at Fenway Park and sent them home with a special Boston Red Sox jersey. The name on the back -- Yarnell. The number -- 19. Every member of the roster signed it.

The Red Sox went on to win the 2013 World Series. On what would have been Wade Parker's birthday.
