On this day many years ago my life forever changed. The love of my life was taken away in an instant by a cold blooded killer....since then my life has never never been the same. Yes, I smile, I laugh but it's not the same laugh or smile as it was before this day. The only man that has ever made me feel truly loved, gone in an instant. There is a sore in my heart that has never healed. So I go on trying to live as you would want me to but it's not the same. I just learned how to live with that sore,that ache. To my friends that are married to law enforcement officers I pray that the knock on the door never comes for you because I never want you to feel this pain. My only consolation is I know he is resting in peace and no one can never hurt him again as he patrols the heavens. RIP my love till I see you again. Atlanta Police Officer Joseph Emmanuel Davis end of watch 6/7. I will forever love you. Mrs Evelyn Davis
