Officer Hart, I just read the reflection left by Ms. Bartoni and if you indeed did shield her from the gunman's fire, that should be mentioned in the synopsis of your murder. Though your heroism should never be in question, the extent of your heroism should be shared as an example.

I'm sure you are still resting in peace and I'm sure God still blesses you, Brother.
