To my brother Lee...I am so proud to call you my brother. Your commitment to "protect and serve" was incredible. You made the ultimate sacrifice...as many of your fellow officers do. Rest in peace.
And to those reading this that have lost loved ones, my heart goes out to you. I know that I will never see my brother again on this earth, but he is always with me. And I can't wait to see him again in Heaven.
Live your life full of pride, instead of remorse. I wish you strength and healing as you deal with your loss.
