I never met my Father and not a day goes by that I don't think and wonder what if....

I am proud of my Father and for all active, retired and all members of the law enforcement family.

Thank you to everyone who has posted such kind words and thoughts. I have a guardian angel who is with me everyday. He is joined with others who continue to hold watch in heaven.
