My dearest brother in law as we gathered today for the Annual Fallen Officers Memorial Service, there were so many treasured and fond memories of you floating in my thoughts.
Your dedication to family and career was impeccable. You are truly missed and loved very much!!! It’s difficult to believe it’s been 16 long years since I had to say farewell to ~my~ “Best Bro in Love” ever. Our family hasn’t been the same without you. Thanks for loving and taking care of all who loved you....family, fellow officers, the community and those who decided to disrespect the law. You had a special effect on all us with your kindness, generosity and wisdom. All of us greatly appreciate you!!! Love you forever brother in love!!!
