Just driving around town when I ended up behind a yellow hummer. It's license plate frame caught my attention... "And on the 8th day God created Police Officers." And then I spotted a memorial sticker with your name. My heart goes out to your family. My father, Deputy David Grant was killed in the line of duty EOW 5-31-04. My husband is currently a motor officer with RPD. I know how it feels to have your world ripped from you. I just wanted to let the family know - I saw his memorial sticker and though I did not know Deputy Minnie, I am thinking of him today. May he continue to rest in peace -
