I want to let people know. Sheriff Badder was a wonderful person, and dear friend. Sheriff Badder saved my life three weeks before a drunken coward took his life, from his loving family and friends. I think of that night that Sheriff Badder saved my life, and hope that my life has always been worthy of him saving me. Thank you my dear friend... MISS YOU.
