Were to start, well first I will lead off with my name is Rebecca Grimes-King, the next to the youngest daughter of Sgt. Scott Grimes. My youngest sister Robyn found this page and as I read these reflections a million years fell as did what felt like a rush of emotion just as it did on the day of November 29, 1995, although I have grown over the years that have passed I still miss him everyday. I have two daughters now Hanah and Hayven that I wish so much were lucky enough to have known this man, the man all of you see as a hero persay and yes I do as well, although for him he would have just said "it's my job", he was as stated the epitamy of an officer, one that gave respect, fairness, and understanding. The ultimate sacrifice came to him without hesitation I am sure because not only would he had done this regardless, the fact that he knew it was his job to protect his fellow officers in blue he was just that kind of man! I love and miss him everyday of my life and will until my last day. I was lucky enough to have been blessed with a step-dad who came into my life as an adult but also knew my dad and respected him so much due to the fact he was a former correctional officer, he passed away as well a year ago but as most would say oh that sucks but in my mind I was lucky enough to have ha to love of two fathers, one which you all know made the ultimate sacrifice and it has changed so many things in the Department of Corrections for the better. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR UPLIFTING AND KIND WORDS! It's amazing to me what will touch and bring people together.. Some will know some won't but your birthday is this Thursday and we think of you every one of them and everyday! Until we meet again! :) GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!
