Brian was taken from us 20 years ago today. Hard to believe it's been so long. As his Mom, there has never been a day that I haven't missed him, however, I have been determined to not allow my son's killer to take anything else away from me. Not my faith, my joy, or my love for those who chose law enforcement like Brian did. I read something today that I would like to share and felt was so appropriate. It said "There are worse things than dying, being forgotten is. My family and I have found comfort in knowing that Brian's brothers and sisters in law enforcement will never forget him or his family.
