Lee,
I can't believe its coming up on 19 years. I think of you often especially after being on the scene of DW Smith's murder in JC on March 31st. All those memories from August 3rd, 1995 came flooding back. And now your son Danny is on the job working with us. He is a fine young man and a good officer. You would be so proud of him!
Rest in peace my friend and thank you for watching over us all. We all miss you.
