I went to visit your name on the national law-enforcement officer memorial wall. Like so many names on that wall this world lost a great person. So many still talk so fondly about you. DUI enforcement is always an important aspect of law enforcement and after your death your department has become a leader in the removal of impaired drivers. The Decatur/ Macon county agencies have invested a lot of training into its officers to continue removing impaired drivers. Your death has inspired so many officers to remove impaired drivers from the road saving countless lives.
