Rest easy my hero. You are what is defined the soldier that faces danger, while others would just avoid. You cared enough to serve your community beyond that what is expected of you. For that my brother, I salute you. May God continue to hold you in his hands, and also to watch over your loving family. ALL BLUE LIVES MATTER!
