You are missed and loved very much. I wish I could have met you and I know Dad carries you in his heart. When I was born, Dad used your initials H. A. to give me the name Heather Angela. When I made the choice to become a police officer, it was with you and Dad in mind. My name plate on patrol was inscribed H. A. White. I wish you could see the kind of man your son became. My older brother, Rick and I are police officers, carrying on our family's tradition of Texas Law Enforcement. I have a son and two daughters now. My son, Connor, is Dad's constant companion. Connor wants to be a Marine when he grows up, like you and Dad were.

I love you, see you soon.
