Just to tell you that you were my inspiration to become a police officer. And after 18 years on the force still remember you as the older kid that use to play with us. The day you join the force was a proud day for your family and for me. The day a first saw you with your uniform on i knew them i wanted to be a police officer.
I always remembered you and i pass down that memories to my daughters. You always be my inspiration and my friend.
