Trooper Brooks Lawson,
I do not know you, nor was I even alive during your lifetime. But I have a connection to you. I am an Alabama State Trooper, as you. My wife taught your granddaughter in first grade. You have a beautiful family. I have met your sons that were just babies when you were took from them. I have took an etching of your name off of The Wall in Washington DC and will give it to them as a reminder, that your sacrifice will not be forgotten. I was actually at a funeral not long ago, and stumbled over your grave. I pulled back the grace, and cleaned it up a bit before I left. Thank you for your service, and I hope to meet you in Heaven one day. PS, I gave your granddaughter, Courtney at little trooper bear years ago.
