It's coming up on 20 years Sir. I did not know you but I lost my brother in the line of duty in 1984 with LAPD. My own husband had a freak fatal boating accident on Lake Havasu only theee weeks before your EOW. I think of you every time I go past your cross, and I left a star spangled heart there for you today. Slow hand salute Sir. We will never forget.
