Today another Omaha officer was laid to rest. This morning, I could only sum up my feelings as though I were "walking through a memory that I'd never experienced." But as I stood there and paid my respects, I felt proud to stand there in your honor. I felt as though you and Dad were standing there with me, and as I held your retirement ring, I knew this was where I was supposed to be. Though I never got the chance to meet you, standing in your honor helped me experience that memory.

PS-Take care of Dad for me.
