We have never met, but I did meet your father and was his room mate at the COPS Parents Retreat. Know that he gives others who are grieving a chance to forget their problems for a short time and laugh a little. When he enters the room filled with parents who have lost officers, the shroud of darkness is immediately lifted by his spirit that he shares with all of us. Through him you will never be forgotten. Continue to keep watch over him and all of your loved ones. You have not been forgotten.
