My heart and troughs are with your wife and children. As and with any day, they said a prayer, that daddy would come home safe. But sadly he was called home to become a bright star looking down on all the men and woman in law enforcement and let them know he is now at peace. Not in pain from the accident, or angry that he has left all that matter so much in his life. He is gone beyond Arion's Belt and some night, when you look out you will see his star brightly shining as a beacon to all those he loved as a reminder he is still he in your memories. His laughter,his smile, the way he walked. But, for now, we need to give his family the grace and love of this horrible loss.
