Another year has passed and I continue to miss you terribly. A wonderful friend of mine did a special thing for me this year. My recruit team gave me an Officer Thompson bobble head before they left for PTO. My friend “kidnapped” her and she went on an adventure. There were ransom notes and a suspect board that were a part of this adventure but that is another story for another time. :) You would have appreciated the humor and adventure behind it:) In the end I discovered that he took her to the LE Memorial where he took a picture of her by your name engraved on the wall. He framed the picture and led clues for me to find it. When I found it I burst into tears because he took the time to do something so special for me that involved you. That picture is in my office next to my favorite picture of me and you. Even though it has been many years since we lost you the emotions are still overwhelming and always present. I continue to smile at your picture and touch it as I walk by everyday.
I wish you were here.
