Just wanted to stop and leave a reflection on your page...

Yesterday your daughter came to support my son as he graduated college with his Criminal Justice Degree... like your daughter... my son is following his father's footsteps into a law enforcement career... It truly meant the world to us all... Although I never met you... I believe that you met my husband as he did an internship with your department a year before his death... that connection was felt...

Thank you for your service... and your daughter's service... and continue to watch over us all...
