Yesterday while I was on patrol, I met your mother when I noticed her National Police Memorial sweatshirt. She told me about you and I invited her to come to the P.D. and see our Fallen Officer Memorial Wall. She came in this afternoon and we had a nice talk and I learned a lot about you and your family. Your Mom is very proud of you and misses you. I enjoyed my visit with her and will talk to her in the future !!
