Today at The Peninsula where I do Friday Sabbath services, there was an interfaith breakfast and your cousin, Reverend Gilbert Hepburn was there. Fifteen years ago at a ribbon cutting ceremony in Hallandale Beach, we met and spoke. It was during the 911 period in which our country was under siege. Planes were hijacked and innocent lives were lost. Today, I told your cousin I would leave this humble reflection for you, Officer Hepburn. A man of faith and resolve. Rest in peace and thank you for serving the people of Hallandale Beach, a place my family once called home.
