I didn't know you personally, but I see that today is the anniversary of your passing. You died being a symbol of the law, with courage and a sense of devotion to doing your duty. I'm just John Q. Public, who has respect for the law. I hope you're guarding your loved ones from Heaven, as you guarded the citizens of Chicago from the criminal element.
