I know the family still misses you, and is still very proud of you. This job has taught me many things, but none more important than the lesson that "tomorrow is not promised". The service you and Uncle Butch provided was/is greatly appreciated. You and Butch are two of the reasons I got into field. I am proud to call the two of you family, not just in blood but in blue as well.

Until we meet again.
