Thinking about you today. No amount of time could ever make us forget you courage and sacrifice for our country. We never seem to realize how lucky we are to have such men and women who are willing to put their lives on the line so we can be safe. Many thanks and may your legacy continue to live on the cops who currently serve today. RIP
