Tim, May 17th, 2024 the date you were officially added to the Columbus Ohio Police Memorial wall. I know you watched from Heaven above as your brothers continued the battle to have you honored in Columbus as you have been for many years in D.C. Retired SWAT officer LB never gave up to make sure both Law Enforcement walls matched with our local Heroes. Thank you CPD Chain of command for finally doing the righteous duty. You are missed by your brothers in blue, and will never be forgotten.
