Officer Weber,

I never met you, but I recently had the privilege to speak with your son, Eric Weber. I am trying to book a flight for the funerals in Baton Rouge. Your son and I spoke for a bit and you could tell being a cops kid meant a lot to him. He overextended himself every way possible trying to help us. He was obviously very proud when he talked about you and we both got a bit emotional when talking about me attending a policeman's funeral and the obvious memories it brought back for him. Officer Weber, you would be very proud of the man your son has become. He thanked me for my services and I thanked him for the ultimate sacrifice you made. We ended he conversation acknowledging we both bleed blue. Even during this unthinkable times, it made me realize how proud I am to be a cop
