Trooper Holcomb, I knew your father. I met him in a time in my life that I was investigating a career in Law enforcement. Let me tell you after that hand shake and man what a hand shake I was forever a, " Hawkl-A-Maniac", this man was the model I lived by as a Police Officer in Berry Hill TN. and Goodlettsville TN. You see Hawk was working a PT job at the, "One for the Sun concert" at hermitage landing I was a security guard there. After a couple of days with him there was no turning back. I was going to be a Cop.....period point blank.! I thank the day I met Hawk and mourned the day he passed. HE WAS THE TRUE PRO WE ALWAYS WANT TO BE LIKE. I know that since Hawks passing heaven is a lot safer.

God bless you,

Patrol Officer
Berry Hill, Goodlettsville Police Departments
