Dear Cousin,

I never knew you well since I was really young back then, but family is family. I can attest to the fact of your memory living on in the hearts of all your loved ones.

Your earthly life may have been cut short, but your life lives on in your loved ones hearts and minds.

I too ended up in law enforcement and I would have loved the opportunity to get to know you during my time as a deputy. That would have been awesome.

May your memory live on forever. Cousins by family, brothers in blue.

Med Ret. Deputy Mark Garrison
