I think of you often. I was with you on your last day on earth. Although you were the first officer I had ever known personally to die, sadly you haven't been the last. I can never thank you enough for the personal sacrifice you made. I left EMS to also serve my fellow man as an officer. The pride and satisfaction over the years of my service far outweighed the long hours and low pay. Officers like you will be remembered forever. Rest in Peace my brother. Matthew 5:9

I will continue to pray for your family and friends left behind.
