I never had the privilege to meet you, but your partner who lived that night told me stories growing up about you and him. They were amazing, filled with bravery and heroism. Because of you and your partner, Deputy Stanley McFadden, my grandfather, both your actions inspired me to become a police officer. Words fall short for what you gave me, protecting my grandfather and giving me the career I know and love. I cannot thank you enough. I'm sure you two are now reunited since his passing Oct. 19. RIP Sir, We'll meet one day.
