Thank you for leaving a family heritage I can be proud of and share with my children. I am your great granddaughter. I knew of the story of my great grandmother being appointed sheriff after your death, but I was not aware you were killed in a car accident. I also learned through my research you were a very popular sheriff and you did many things to help your fellowman. I am proud you are my great grandfather. I am also proud my great grandmother was thought to be the first woman sheriff according to Ripley's Believe It or Not. Thank you for a family heritage to be proud of and to share with your great, great grandchildren.
