Hard to believe it's been five years TODAY.
I still find some log books occasionally in the control rooms or Hospital Log book with your entries. My fingertips smooth the tattered pages and delicately touch the ink mementos of your time as Wilcox. You were an awesome officer. Your loyalty and dedication are qualities hard to find in many who walk the beat now.
I am so glad that Jesus was your Savior. I know that He has you near to Him. I KNOW where you are. 'Til we meet again on that celestial shore... I'll always love you. I'll have Paula in prayers. I cry out to the Lord for her comfort.
She paid a hard price in losing you.
