Officer Largo over the past 3 days as part of the Police Unity Tour I have ridden my bike from NJ to Washington DC in your honor my fallen brother. Today I will ride through the Police Memorial to honor your sacrifice.
I will send the bracelet I’ve worn, a rubbing of your name on the wall to your command.
Thanks for your sacrifice my brother.
