Hi Grandpa,
I never knew you but I found your name on the wall of the Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC. Your son, my Dad, never really knew you either. He was 6 when you were killed. His 7 brothers and sister helped raise him. I knelt down next to your name and felt honored to be there. I know I will see you all again and I can't wait to walk by a stream and talk and talk with you and Dad. Your great great grandchildren are beautiful and I can't wait to tell them about my trip to Washington DC to find you. God Bless You Grandpa.
