Our Brother Larry, has been gone 15 years today. Time dulls the pain but never replaces the hole in your heart. Larry would be proud to know that our son, Jared became an officer because of him. Also he became a k-9 officer and when his Malinois arrived from overseas, we discovered that he (Achilles) was born on the anniversary of Larry's death. We know Achilles was send by Larry to protect our son while he protects and serves. We are remembering our beloved Brother, Son, Father and celebrating the 3rd Birthday of this special K-9 and the dedication and service of all officers both fallen and active.
