Just wanted to post again to say that I think of Don often, he was my first partner in law enforcement when I began almost 31 years ago. When doing officer memorial or officer safety presentations I always make it a point to talk to my audience about Don to let them know who he was and what a great man Don was. I am doing another presentation next month and plan on talking about Don and what he stood for.
