Sgt. Land, I wanted to leave a reflection to you, letting you know you shared your wisdom to a bunch of us here in Cumming at the old Walmart parking lot back when we were all just teens. I wish I could have thanked you sooner. Thanks for the good times every weekend up town, telling us about speeding and letting us check out your police car, radar gun, etc. I used to think you were the cutest and coolest cucumber in town!! You really touched my heart at a very young age and made me a great driver. I will always remember you, David! Rest in peace. My heart goes out to your family. Keep your eyes on us all and continue to keep us safe, as always!! Thank you.
