Michael,

Today we visited the National Law Enforcement Memorial in honor of you. It was an emotional and humbling experience. We miss you dearly and are so thankful for the time we had with you here on earth. Thank you for being the friend you were. You have touched so many lives and it was a privilege to call you a Friend.
It's hard to believe that you've been gone now for 11 years this month.
We look forward to the day we will meet once agin at Heaven's gates!
