Will be 20 years this month on the 19th since you were called home to Glory. You've been on my mind a lot lately. Your race was run with such dignity and grace. Some days it is still so hard to believe that you're gone. I know you'd have much to say on the state of our country and treatment of all LEO's due to recent events. I'm so happy that we can rest in the fact that one day we will see you again in Heaven due to the love of our Heavenly Father. Until then continue watching over all of us from your vantage point above. You are always missed.
