Al, I just wanted you to know that yesterday, on National Police Memorial Day, I wore my new Dallas PD commemorative badge with your name, badge number, and EOW date engraved, to honor your memory. We were the same age at the time of your death, and you were the first Dallas officer killed in the line of duty after my appointment seven months earlier on 1 April 1976. Thank you for your selfless service to our city.
