MY NAME IS CHRISTINE DYESS HUFF. I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN FT. MYERS, FLORIDA. MY FATHER, WHO IS DECEASED, WAS CLARENCE DYESS OF ALVA, FLORIDA. I PRESENTLY LIVE IN GEORGIA.

YESTERDAY I HAD THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I WAS VISITING MY DAUGHTER WHO LIVES IN WASHINGTON, DC.
WE WERE CASUALLY TOURING THE LAW ENFORCEMENT MEMORIAL . WHILE WALKING ALONG LOOKING AT THE MOVING MEMORIAL ,TO MY AMAZEMENT, THE NAME 'EARL DYESS JUMPED OUT AT ME. WHAT A SHOCK! A CHILL RAN THROUGH MY BODY.
I NEVER MET EARL DYESS, BUT KNEW THAT HE HAD BEEN SHERIFF OF LaBELLE.
WHAT AN HONOR TO SEE MY LAST NAME ENGRAVED IN STONE AT A UNITES STATES OF AMERICA'S MEMORIAL. AT THAT MOMENT I was PROUD TO HAVE THE DYESS NAME. YOUR DEDICATION AND HONOR MADE YOU A A TRUE HERO AND FOR THE FUTURE GENERATIONS TO COME, I NOW HAVE A MOST INTERESTING STORY AND AM A PROUD ANCESTOR OF EARL DYESS.
I SALUTE YOU AND YOURS. THANK YOU.
