We love you and miss you everyday friend! There isn't a day that goes by that Jess and I don't think about you or talk about the memories we have of you. I will never forget the night you passed away, I wont forget taking the call from the people who stopped to help you immediately after the accident occurred. I knew it was a bad accident from the second I started getting the information from them. Little did I know at the time how bad it was going to be.I remember getting the confirmation that you were in that squad car and the feelings that came with it.
Susan, Jess and I are so proud to have known you and call you friend. You served the citizens of Polk County, Pleasant Hill and Des Moines with honesty and integrity. Rest in peace sister, we love you and miss you and pray for your family daily.
