It's been another year since you was taken from us. I know I and many others still miss you terribly. Things have changed so much for us in the law enforcement field and it has not been for the better. We are in a time where it seems everyone from the President down to the lowest street thug is on the same sheet of music singing how bad all police are. If any of these idiots had ever been in a position where someone like you were taken from them like you were taken from us, they would certainly change their tune. Being left behind is the hardest part. Not seeing you, not talking to you, and just knowing you're no longer here is so hard to grasp even after all this time. You always believed in me and for that I will be eternally thankful. Austin and I kept our promise and did the best we could do to accomplish what you asked. We both talk about you often and share the same old stories as we never get tired of hearing them. Rest high on that mountain my friend. Rest high.
