You were my Great Great Grandfather. You are the only other blood relative I have in law enforcement. I have heard stories of your life and death. The newspaper article of your death hangs on the wall in my apartment. I make sure to tell the story of your sacrifice to my family, friends and fellow law enforcement officers every chance I get.

RIP Great Great Grampa.
