As I think about you today on your 43rd birthday, I can only imagine hearing you singing and just making everyone's soul be just overflowing with joy. I know you are watching over all of your law enforcement family here at King George Sheriff's Office. I just viewed your portrait on our wall of honor and I said, I wonder what you would think about how things have changed here on earth in the law enforcement world. Your buddy Deputy Simmons is still here and you would be proud as I remember you praying for him to always be safe. You would be proud to know that the ABCYC posse is doing a little reunion get together for next weeks revival. I know you will be singing along with them. I'm still working late like I always did when you were here. My 34th anniversary is in sight and you were right, they will probably have to drag me out of here. Love you cousin Craig. Shannon misses you and we laugh and talk about you when one of those memorable church moments hit us. I know you are rejoicing in Heaven with Mother Virginia, Dad Walter, Brother Boydton and eating the heck out of the best pound cake in the world from your Mom. Enjoy your special day!! You earned those heavenly wings.
