It was 30 years ago today they came to tell us you were gone. I still remember that awful morning and wondering "how can this be true?" over and over. Such a senseless act and it takes you from us. Somehow, with a lot of help from your friends and fellow officers, we all managed to go on through the pain of losing you. And we still miss you and love you. You are not forgotten.
