Our dearest Evelyn,

Thinking of you today on your birthday. How fortunate we are to have had you in our lives. My season with you is filled with so many fond memories. We had so much fun on patrol in Cutler Ridge.

God bless your children and family. We are always keeping them in our prayers. Thank you for watching over your law enforcement brothers and sisters.

Your friend,
