Thank you for your beautiful reflections on behalf of my baby brother, Officer Raymond Salas Sanchez.....whom was killed in the line of duty 34 years ago. Years go by, but wonderful memories of him live on in our hearts and thoughts. Not a day goes by without my missing him very much. Thank you all, fellow law enforcement officers and families, for your services.
