I worked for Hillsboro Police Department for 25 yrs and Hill County for 11 after that. I just recently discovered your story. I am ashamed to say, that we say that we will never forget, but apparently we do. On this day, May 1, 2024, I along with a few others have researched your story, and plan on bringing you back into our memories. I promise you, I will never forget and I will try to ensure that nobody does. Thank you for your sacrifice.

It is with a humbled heart that I try to live up to that, which you have given so much. God Bless you my Friend, My Hero.
