14 years ago today we received the tragic news Matt and the pain never goes away. I can just imagine the pain and sorrow that your whole family still endures to this day. Mrs. Huffman, you raised a fine son who was always there for his fellow deputies and had a heart of gold. You and your hubby should always be proud. We will never forget your son.

"They whom we love and lose, are no longer where they were before....they are now wherever we are"..

Rest in eternal peace my brother. Your service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
