Officer James:
I met your widow, Lori, this evening in Grapevine. She's a fine lady, and I know she misses you a lot. We only spoke briefly, so I don't know what she's doing with her life, but I can tell she's happy. But, her life is not what she wanted it to be. She enjoyed spending a few minutes talking to an ex-cop.
