I have been a law enforcement officer for over 14 years and this is the first time I have visited this page. Perhaps it was a coincidence that I came across the story of your sacrifice, 94 years and one day after your passing. Or perhaps it is not a coincidence. The story of your sacrifice is still being told.

Rest easy, brother.
