Bill, it's near the 46th anniversary of your passing, but you, your name and your service to the profession are still remembered and always will be. I recall your sense of humor and I expect you would find it somewhat amusing to see your name carved on the Denver Police Department memorial---but there it is and you will always be honored for getting on that three-wheeler you cussed at and doing your job, right until the end.
