Officer Matt Rittenhouse was killed in an automobile accident when his patrol car went out of control shortly before midnight.

It is believed that severe weather and rain-slicked roads, the result of Hurricane Ivan, contributed to the accident.

So, I don't know where the message I sent you on Christmas Eve is, maybe it went straight to you and bypassed your page :). And that's ok if it did. You know you are, and always will, be in my heart and soul; and someday, someday, I will be back in that big enveloping hug and all will be right again.
I love you, I miss you, My precious Smiling Eyes.
