Dear sir, I met your daughter and grandchildren tonight at a local restaurant. Each of them came to me individually as I stood in line to order and shook my hand, thanked me for my service, and offered the warmest smiles. To read your story after meeting these fine people is a profound thing that I can't exactly find the words to express. Wherever you are now, know that you have left a legacy within your family that radiates out through them to bring peace and solace to those of us behind the badge. Thank you for your sacrifice in service. Rest In Peace.
