Today on the 49th anniversary of your passing, Mom went by your street sign in Denver that was dedicated during Police Week in May 2016. The ceremony and week long activities were absolutely amazing. We got to learn more about the events the day you were shot. We met your partner too. It was a week of memories, happy and sad, that I will never forget. Just as I will never forget you. I love always and forever Daddy!
