It’s been 37 years and it seems like we lost you yesterday. This day will never be easy for me or any of us. You paid the Ultimate sacrifice and you are a Hero Father and you died doing the job you loved to do. I’ll never forget when you used to take me in to the S.E.B. Station and how proud you were of your team. I talk about you daily and have told my Family all about you. You were the most amazing Father a Son could have and all my memories of you will live on forever and I Love you So Much Rest in Paradise Dad E.O.W. 4/16/83 Sargent Smith
