Officer Latvis, you lost your life while helping others, it's what being a hero is all about. Of course, no doubt your family would have preferred to have you with them, especially at Christmas, you made an enormous sacrifice.

You will be then and now, a true hero. Nausha Police Dept. is one of the most respected in the northeast, and it's the women and men like who are responsible for hat.

God Bless and may your rest be forever be Peaceful, Brother.
