Sgt. Hanson, I met your wife and daughter tonight at the candlelight vigil. They're both beautiful. They touched my heart in a way that can't be expressed and as a result, you're memory will live in in me. I'm sorry for your loss, Scott, but your wife and daughter are ensuring your legacy. You should be very proud. Your loss is not in vain. Good has and will continue to come. Like I told your girl, I pray my 3 girls and son will never have to experience what your's have gone through and their prayers give me hope of that. Rest easy. We have the line. God bless you and your family.
