Thanks Dick for protecting me from the vicious jaws of Tina the killer Jack Russell. Though I was such a young child when you were lost, I attest my decision to go into law enforcement to your memory. I don't get home often enough, but I make sure to stop by whenever I do. Rest in peace and I hope I can inspire someone as you did me.
