God bless the Rosa family, and give you peace. My family and I were in business in Rock Springs during those days, and virtually everyone knew of the crime and corruption that infested the town. I hope you find comfort in knowing there are very many people who believe Michael was a good officer, fearlessly trying to his duty. I didn't know Michael personally, but have tremendous respect for him.
