There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Just like you, my day starts early in the morning. I think of you as I lace up my boots, strap on my vest, zip my uniform shirt up and place this gun on my side. I wish you were here Michael. I know you'd be proud of me and the profession I chose. You'll never realize what an impact you had on my life. I am so honored to know that I share the same profession as you and the many others who gave their lives to keep their communities safe. I love you brother and I'll never forget you.
