Shane we have had a tough time in Columbus County. As you already know we lost a very special friend and Highway Patrolmen Kevin Connor. Such a sencless, uncalled for tragedy. I truly wish I had the power to give the correct justice to the ones who took his life. It has made me sick to my stomach. I hate knowing that we have, (well I can't use the words that go through my mind) kind of infidels up and down our highways. God knows I have had to pray so hard for God to control my thoughts.
You and Kevin enjoy patrolling heaven together. We miss you more than words can say.
Until we meet again
Love You SON!!!!
