To Officer Timothy Howe and all his loved ones:

My name is Keith Langskov and I will never forget my November 25, 1994, I turned 8 years old. Officer Howe let me sit in the front seat of his patrol car on my birthday. He let me turn on the sirens and took me around the block. He even bought me some snacks at the 7/11 on MacArthur Blvd. I will never forget what he told me that night. He said " Keith, I never want to see you in the back of a patrol car." He asked me what I wanted to be when I get older of course I told him I wanted to be a police man.

I will never forget him. He was my protector.

I will never forget seeing his picture in the Oakland Tribune and my mother explaining what happened. I was so sad.

I am 29 years old now hard to believe 21 years ago Officer Timothy B. Howe gave me a birthday I would never forget.

I spent 10 years in the Marine Corps and start my own security company. I think about Officer Howe all the time.
