As I'm watching the funeral service for Officer Bolton, I'm thinking about how much a family's life has been forever changed, just as our's was almost 27 years ago. Officer Bolton was someone's uncle, just as you were mine. I know my life changed forever because of your senseless death, and my heart hurts for those nieces and/or nephews that have been effected by another senseless act of violence. I'm also thinking about all you missed out on here on earth - not only did you not get to meet your daughter, but now you have 3 beautiful granddaughters who will never know their grandfather. And Reagan looks so much like you and her momma! I know you're watching down on all of us and smiling. I can't wait until the day we're all united again for eternity. I love you and miss you Uncle Bubba!
