Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to my nephew. There still are no words that can explain our loss and how much you are missed. I was going through my pictures this week and I found the one of me standing next to you at your swearing in, in Bakersfield. I stood there with pride by your side, knowing that you would be the best police officer Kern County would be getting. I was and still am such a proud Aunt to have called you my nephew. Love you always. Auntie Grace
