Tim, just checking in on you brother- WE must continue to be “my brothers keeper”(Ref: the biblical story of Cain and Abel from the book of Genesis). True leaders are born and already have it in their heart. These men are not made. This is why we have men that just “talk the walk” and the very FEW that “walk the walk”. One of these great leaders finally came along at CPD and was able to finally get you Tim Allen Haley added to our CPD memorial wall in Columbus, Ohio- it will be official in May 2024.. The struggle has been long (15years) but the fight was never given up on by your brothers. Like my grandpa always said “if you ain’t swimming upstream into the battle, you ain’t swimming”. WE love you brother.
