RTP Officer Ackerman, My husband showed me a newspaper of your passing and i was shocked because you were born 3 days before my daughter and your mom and i went to high school together and were friends.... The lord needed you to keep everyone in check in heaven. From what i have seen about you sounds like you were a Great Man who made his mom Cindy so proud. I can see the look on her face now! Rest in Peace OFFICER DANIEL ACKERMAN.
