Here we are....you are now a grandfather to a beautiful baby boy. Your sons are doing amazing and Sean and Amanda are both getting married this year. I have been hired by our police department as an Auxiliary Police Constable....it felt right and like it was time to not just give back but to continue the work you and Lou did/do as amazing officers. It feels amazing to put the uniform back on and I know you will be watching over me as I now patrol the streets too again. We miss you...especially when it comes to all these major life events, but know that this man you sent to us has been everything you would have expected him to be as my husband and dad to your children. Time hasn't healed the wounds....but they have made us stronger in our convictions as moral human beings and law enforcers. We still await the sentence of your murderer to be fulfilled...but I won't rest until he is executed. He robbed you and all of us so much. Our 28th anniversary is just a few days away and I just think of how proud you would be. I do hope heaven is all you dream it can be and that you continue to watch over all of us. Society is much different 19 years later. We miss you Billy, we love you and you're always in our hearts. Happy anniversary...I know it would have been an amazing day with you. God bless you always and know you are always missed and never forgotten....
