It has been 40 yrs ago today since we lost my brother Stevie. I went to the newly opened Commonwealth Public Safety Memorial today to see his name on the wall to honor him on this solemn anniversary. It will never be enough to take the pain away, but it was a lovely gift that memorialized not only his sacrifice but all those in Virginia that lost their life in the line of duty. The loved ones will never forget, but now every one who takes the time to look at the names on the memorial will remember.
