Thomas Webb was my dad, and I was eight years old. We kissed him goodby in the morning and an hour later he was shot. When I hear about another fallen officer, I always remember that day and my heart goes out to those families and especially the children. My children and grandchildren will never know what a kind man and great dad he was.
