May you rest in peace. Lord, please bring peace and comfort to his family. Becoming a member of law enforcement is truly the work of a courageous person. Surely there are easier ways to make a living. Never knowing what they are walking into, or may run into during a tour, they are the daily hero's. The noblest profession on earth. Thank you Sgt. Anderson. This country owes you and your family a debt that they cannot possible begin to repay.

Sgt. K Ford.
