To my uncle in heaven, although I never got to know you because I was a year old I became a police officer because of you. My mission is what you loved to do serve and protect. I will carry your legacy with me on every tour and to make sure I fulfill your dreams as your life was cut short. Love you always. Fidelis Ad Mortem.
