It has been nearly 53 years, and Dad, there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I gain strength and pride daily by working for the same agency (CHP).

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that have taken the time to leave a reflection. Especially to Chief Canada. It means alot to me. Thank you again.
