Pam,

I am a police officer with the Covington, KY Police Department. I was born on 2/1/75... In May, 2015 I will be participating in the Police Unity Tour (250 mile bicycle ride) to raise money / awareness for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and honor those officers who made the ultimate sacrifice. Based on my DOB and his EOW, I will be riding in honor of your father...

God Bless you and your family...
