It was a Saturday, just like today, exactly 34 years ago. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. None of us who knew you then will forget that night.

You were so excited to be a police officer. You had your whole career and your whole life in front of you. It was such a tragic ending.

I hope our prayers for you, and for your mother, have made a difference. I hope her tears have been wiped away, and that we will all meet together again in peace.
