Ester, your sacrifice won't be forgotten ( I read this page and reflected on this. I am just one of many) I'm a 52 year old, 29 year service Welsh (UK, look it up) police veteran, soon to retire. I was trawling the internet regarding a route 66 retirement vacation when I happened across the Navajo police department page. Being a fellow cop, and I am a traffic cop & biker, I read deeper and deeper...... I might not have known you, but I bet our values were the same.
You were driving to the aid of a fellow officer when your life was cut short...... respect.

Respect to all my U.S. 'brothers and sisters of the badge' ( a phrase I adopted from a cop in VA), be it Native American/full time/reserve etc.
