I'll never forget as a young teenager living in Groveton, my mom called the police on me and you were the officer that responded to the call!! You came into our trailer home, sat down and had a talk with me and never made me feel like I was a bad kid!! Because of your encouraging words, you'll forever be a stain on my brain!! It's crazy because I just told my 3 kids this whole story!! May your beautiful soul continue to rest in peace!!
