It's taken my 7 months to gather the courage to finally come to this page.Brett was my uncle, my best friend,and my hero.He was 16 when I was born and I swear it was his mission to make me his "Minni-Me" .I remember his graduation from the academy, and how my mother cried, at the time I did not understand why. On the way home I heard her tell my dad he's only 18 what if he gets hurt. He served 11 years and to me he was invincible. He would tell me in his early years on the force of the "cool" callsome he would get.but I never realized the tole it took on his body. The "cool" calls turned in to more of a disappointment of things people would do to others. Many of the stuff I was horrified to hear but he told me them with a lesson attached. Now I know the tole it took upon him. I miss our talks after he got off Duty. Or calling him when he was on duty and I thought I heard a noise outside, or when I would see something scary. He was my hero, correction he IS my hero. It took me a long time to even go back home because I would look for his patrol car. But when I did I sat by his grave for hours. I was mad not at him but at his job for taking him away from me. Then I realized how much he had d9ne for the community and why he did it. Now I am thankfully that I got the pleasure of having a true hero as my uncle.
