My son Ben has started with Wausau PD. Only you know the joy in my heart he has chosen this career path but also the fear that lives there too. As he puts on his uniform with your blue ribbon tattooed over his heart, please stand by his side and protect him for me. Be his guarding angel and walk the beat with him step for step. You are still my hero and no one can take that from me. Love you chuckles
