You came up in conversation today Drew, in Wisconsin of all places. I was talking to a Wisconsin Warden who recently heard Kate speak at a training conference. When I told him I knew you and had worked with you, he was a little surprised. I got to tell him about you and your impact on my career as a young officer. You were a good Trooper and I am glad to say I was influenced by your service. Thanks again. God's speed sir.
