I am nobody special, just a stranger who happen to stumble upon this web page. Yet, despite my not being anybody special, Special Agent Jerry Dove gave his life to protect people like me. Here it is, year 2016, and Sir, the unspeakable grief of his loss was so profound that I, a complete stranger, feel it rippling through my soul some 30 years later.

Thank you Special Agent. Thank you to those you inspired to follow in your foot steps. Finally, I express my profound sympathy to the loved ones who left behind who feel like it only happened just yesterday.
