Mike, I miss you greatly. You were more than a brother-in-law to me, you were my brother and always will be. To this day, in honor of you, I thank each and every officer I come across, and if it is in a restaurant or coffee shop, I gratefully buy their meals and let them know how greatly they are appreciated. I know how important it is to recognize their courage and willingness to put themselves in harm's way, and the challenges their families face each and every day. I love you, bro. I know you are in the best and most honored of places.
