Growing up my father and his father never allowed us to forget who our Great Great Grandfather, the mighty Sheriff Deputy who lost his life doing a brave and honorable duty. For so long I have tried to locate you, and now everything I have worked so hard to find has now been pouring out. I'm sure you're looking down and finally feel it is time to reveal, as if you've been watching my hard, stubborn, yet honorable work I've done to get this far.

I read these stories of you and I now one day, we will meet and I hope heaven has enough time for me to hear all these stories about you and our family. Plus, we can speak of your Great Great Great Grandson (my youngest son), whom is almost a spinning reflection of you.
