Officer Glenn Allison was my grandfather whom i never had the privilege of meeting. My father was only one years of age at his passing but despite this tragedy turned out to be an amazing father who spoke at the Tulsa Police Memorial before his passing many years ago. I pray daily for the Lords protection over all of you brave officers and thank you kindly for your reflections. Blessings, Kevin Allison
