On a wintry day thirty years ago today, you came upon an accident scene. You rendered aid to the victim however the icy road conditions caused the driver of another vehicle to lose control causing their vehicle to slid into you and in a twinkling of an eye you were GONE.
Deputy Director Blunt
You did not die in vain
You rendered aid to another sacrificing your life in the service to the citizens of the State of Illinois with HONOR, PRIDE, and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to call you BROTHER.
I'm proud to have worn the UNIFORM.
I'm proud to have pinned the STAR upon my chest.
As my years of service have come to an end by means of RETIREMENT.
I'm proud to be S.O.S.
DEPUTY DIRECTOR KENNETH L. BLUNT although you are forever 10-42
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother.
