Papa Doyle. I know i never got to meet you personally, but through out my life i have heard the amazing stories of your life, whether it be the many stories of your life as the chief of police in Ola, or your time as a pastor, or even the times you were the father, or grandfather and how you always handled yourself and the situation around you. It was never about you, you always seemed to care more for other people than yourself, always putting them first. you were a loving father, husband, grandfather, and member of the community you lived in. You always seemed to help out wherever you could if they needed it. even on the day that ended so horribly, you tried to end things peacefully like you always did. Always staying true to your character, and yourself. So many people who have said things about you respected you so much because of who you were.

Now that my life is beginning, i remember the stories of my Papa Doyle and how he lived his life........and all i can say is that I've strove to live my life like yours, always knowing no matter what people say i can make a difference in this world, either as a police officer, Soldier, Family man, or even as a person. you are my Hero, and even though i didn't get to meet you, i know one day in heaven we will meet and have many long conversations. Thank you for your service
