Just want you to know that my family and I have always kept you and your family in our hearts and prayers. I will never forget that day. I can't believe it's been 19 years. You would be so insanely proud of the amazing job your wife has done, raising your three beautiful children. I look up to her so much, and have since the day I met her. She defines strength, courage, love, dignity, and grace. Everyone always says how your children each have some of your very best features/qualities. - And they definitely do! It is so evident that you are living on, in all three of them. <3
One of my proudest moments, to date, was watching your oldest son, as he graduated the academy....and was pinned with your badge #139. He now works along side my husband, and I pray to God, every night to keep them, (and all our men and women in law enforcement) safe. I know you are always watching over them too. Thank you for that. <3
You will never be forgotten.... And always remembered, as a Hero. <3
