Patrolman Grindell, it has now been 53 years since your tragic death. What became of the person you were arresting is not available, but if he is still alive, I hope his actions and their consequences haunt him every day. I also hope he reformed and became a better person, but only God truly knows the answer to that.

I pray your family is well, and I pray that you continue to rest in peace, Brother and I know in my heart that God has blessed you.
