As I sit here at my desk, my thoughts drifted back to my high school days. Drifted to the people that were most influential and who have guided me to where I am today.
I never did get to tell you, Thanks! But as I was an explorer with TPD, you were by far one of the most influential. I strived to become the best person, Officer I can be, all because you led by example and you left an impact on me. You were the example of Community Policing. We would walk the Texas St. Projects, talking with the residents. Seeing their smiles and their laughter as you greeted them with a smile and a wave. They knew they were safe.

I have visited Tallahassee several times since your passing. I have walked Lake Ella and have seen your name on the road. Every time I see it, I hear music playing. Thanks, Dale! Thanks for the memories!!
