Sir, this past May we put a memorial sign up at 2nd/Main St. for you. It's across the street from the new PAB. Everyday dozens and dozens of Officers walk under your sign on their way into the building. I catch guys looking up at it with confusion, hopefully they will take a second from their day and look up your story and remember your sacrifice...may we never forget.
