Today is my mothers Birthday, she passed not long after my father Don Williams was shot and killed In the line of duty. It's hard to look back at all the memories we shared. I was 15 when my father was killed. I remember all the great times we had. I also remember my father was a very devoted officer. I love you Dad RIP. Your son.
