My husband, Echols was a very loving person. He was so proud to be a police officer and wear the uniform. When he died, I was left with two children. The people of the Jacksonville Police Department and the City of Jacksonville
were so good to me. I thank them.

I wish i had been able to growup with you around. Grandma and mom talk about what a wonderful man you were. About going for Sunday drives with no destination in mind, you bringing home a pet monkey and grandma having a fit. I'm sad that i missed all those things. They say my son, your great grandson, looks just like you. I know you will watch over him and be his guardian angel, be the voice inside that keeps him in line. I hope your proud. We have done the best we can without you here. We love you.

Although I've never known you, Grandpa, I miss you everyday. You feel like a vital part of my life that never was to be. I love you, and I thank you for everything. Without you, there would be no . Thank you for mom and Ann and helping to turn Grandma into the fiery warhorse that's seen the family through its darkest times. Hopefully, this new year we'll all work together to be truer to the kind of people that would make you look down from upon high and smile instead of weep. Love you, Grandpa. See you someday, I promise.
