A friend of mine were talking about old law enforcement stories today and he asked me if I’d ever googled my name to see if there were any videos posted of a traffic stop I conducted. I hadn't so out of curiosity, I did. It brought me straight my previous reflection on our time together Tara. I read it and began to tear. I really wished that we had more time together. But just know, that I have not, will not ever forget you.
