I just realized something about the date Officer McLeod was killed along too many others, he died saving me and man, helped by many of his brothers and sister's in Law Enforcement. They saved many, myself amongst the many. I have a beautiful daughter, born on February 14, Valentine's Day. Some would call that irony, I call it God. Thank you God for Officer McLeod and the child sent to me on the day the angels cried, perhaps I owe thanks and Officer and Angel, Bruce McLeod, for choosing that date for the angels to once agin rejoice. I apologize to his family and all who knew him that it has taken me all this time to say a simple 'Thank You'. Dear Lord, tell Officer McLeod that I love him, like a brother but choose to remember him as a Father. Amen
