My husband and I were traveling on the intestate this afternoon when we passed the cross put up in your memory from 34 years ago. Your end of watch may have ended here but the love we have for you shall live on forever in our hearts through those that remember all your accomplishments in your life. A simple emoji of sadness & 34 years was a reminder that we lost you, but Collette's reply of an angel emoji gave me peace of mind that our love for our sister is eternal. Always in our hearts & mind.
