I’m so glad your name is along I-95. I searched your name online and found this site and was able to read others’ memories and learn what an extraordinary man you were. Thank you for your service, to the point of death. I am fortunate - my husband was law enforcement for 35 years and now in retirement, I have him beside me. Your family was not given that opportunity. God bless you.
