A long time ago, I heard a quote. “When you die, who will show up at your funeral? This would be a testament to the life you led.” There were so many people that came to his funeral that they could not fit in the church, they had to stand outside. There was such a diverse group of people that came to pay their respect for such a fine man and officer, people such as; family, friends, and the law enforcement community. I was even told that people he had even arrested, at one time or another, came to pay their respect.
I have tried to live my life in a way you and the rest of my family would be proud of. I have been married now going on 16 years and have a beautiful 12 year old daughter, and I love them unconditionally as you loved yours. I wish my daughter and your grandchildren were able to know you as well as your children, nephew and nieces knew you.
You will always be missed, but never forgotten.
