The recent events in this country make me sick!!!!! I find myself wondering what you'd think and then I remember our conversations about some things that were going on back before your death. Officer involved things. Heck we even had tshirts for the one situation in North Jersey! I still have yours, too.

You would be absolutely OUTRAGED at this stuff going on in our own Country, Mick.

I feel sick to my stomach knowing that today 5 more families have to understand the grief of being a police survivor. Praying there are no more, and praying for all the victims of the incidents today.

The violence NEEDS to stop. The hate NEEDS to stop.

I miss you every single day....and I will ALWAYS keep your memory alive. Thank you for the signs....I see them!!!!

Love you, Poop. Always.
