Officer Sprague,

I went to your funeral. I had only been working for a few months when you were killed. My patrol Sgt met you while you two were working in Joplin, MO after the tornado hit it. He had nothing but good things to say about you, to include the fact that you were hilarious. I appreciate your service, and I think about you and pray that your wife and son are doing well often.
