In our long family of public service it is an honor yet a curse to see your name on this board. I put on the badge everyday and think of my grandmother telling stories about my "Uncle Guy John". Just a shame I do not remember meeting as I was so young. Let you and Kurt keep me safe as I put my badge on and go to work. See you both soon.
