My father, Officer John Reid, was Officer Duffin's partner. My father survived the injuries of the hit-and-run accident but passed away seven years later, due to his injuries.

The accident happened 2 weeks before I was born, so I had little contact with my father after the injury.

If anyone knew my father, I would love to hear from you.
Thank you-
