The last time I left a message for you here was back in 2012, some things have changed since then. I can't help but reflect on receiving your spirit award during the Junior Law Cadets ceremony in 2007. That day your mother wrote to you on here "I hope he returns to the road." I just wanted to let you know that I did just that. I started with the 120th Basic Session on June 24th 2013 and graduated December 20th 2013. Ever since I was was issued my blue and gray, the lapel pin that I received with your award with your badge number on it has been pinned to the sun visor over my seat in my police car and from now until I retire that's where it will be no matter how many different vehicles I have. Although I never knew or met you it's an honor for me to carry on the spirit of your service and sacrifice to this great Commonwealth. Take care of all our brothers and sisters in blue in heaven for here on earth you're never forgotten.
