During your last day on duty I was 2 years from being born. I started my IDOC career 3 months ago today. Just 2 weeks ago I met a Lt. who was transporting an offender from your prison to mine. He knew you, spoke of you, and what happened. I am writing this in hopes your family will see that this mans name will not soon be forgotten !
