It is with honor that I will be riding 250 miles in Law Enforcement United's "Road to Hope" in memory of Deputy Sheriff David Allford. I am the same age as Deputy Allford and I am also married and have two children. Each day we go to work as law enforcement officers and we do not know what the day will bring. The only hope we have is that we have brothers and sisters in law enforcement that will step up to make sure that the fallen and their families are not forgotten. With each mile I ride, my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. Rest in peace brother.
