I am sorry and have thought of Deputy Edwards and Deputy Woods today. This is, as I work for the Gila County Sheriff's Office and in the same area, which they have lost their life's on this date many years ago.

I bless your souls and your family's to ease the pain they have had and have each day.

If I don't make it home today I know my brother will be waiting for me at the gates of heaven. if I make it home I hope I have fulfilled the large shoes you have both left behind and make you proud.

Love you brothers.
