Daddy-O,

I just wanted to say hey and tell you that we still miss and love you so much! Last night I was looking for a Star Wars VHS and in the drawer I saw a VHS movies that said jimmy in your handwriting! And I put it into the VHS player and it's was a video of you 11-13-1988. And you were with the HCSO at the time! You were so young and thin(lol)! But I just started crying bc I got to hear your voice! You said that you were sending the video to the GA Training Center so maybe it would help save officers lives! And all of the what not to do while on duty so that you all would make it home. I don't know who filmed it but I'm so glad I have it so I can always hear your voice! You also said that once u actually looked at the video that u realized what kinds of safety things u didn't follow during the traffic stop! But I know that you must learn quick bc u made it a few mo shy of 16 more years before The Lord took u from us! E.O.W. 05/02/2004 HCPD. I'm so proud to say you are my father!

Love Always,
Ally(Daddy's Oldest Girl 4ever)
