I wish we could talk one more time so I could tell you how much I love you. You are my big brother and I miss you so much.
Virgil daddy would have be so proud of you.
I was talking to someone not long ago when I said your name. She smiled and said you were the kindest and most helpful police chief there ever was.

I love you,
