Bob Talburt was my brother in-law. I will forever remember that dark morning when we were notified. His memorial was so touching, with so many law enforcement agencies honoring him. He would be so proud of his 6-year old daughter at the time, who is now a Veteranarian with a beautiful daughter. I will miss his sense of humor, but look forward to Heaven when we will all be together again.
