Another year has gone by. I am thankful that you have not been forgotten by your fellow law enforcement personnel on this message board. It's comforting to see posts from others that didn't know you, but know the sacrifice that you made. I thank them for that and for keeping this website going. God bless them.
You have not been forgotten by me either, Grandpa. I still wish that I could have known you, that you could have raised your children, that you could have seen your children and grandchildren, your siblings and their children grow and become adults. It would be nice to know how our lives would have been different with you in our lives.
Our family has lost 3 members in the last 5 years, so I trust they are with you now. I will meet you one day, but in the meantime, know that I love you even though I never met you, and I am proud of you and your service to your city. I honor you and pray for all the police officers, K-9's and other personnel that work every day to keep us safe in the midst of the craziness of the people who intend or inflict harm on others. God bless all service members everywhere.
