Just feeling like I need to write something on here after seeing how many officers lately have been killed. I feel deeply for their families and the shock and hurt that their hearts are feeling. It does not go away, time does not heal it. Your family, friends and coworkers just learn to adjust with the fact that you are no longer there each day.
We miss you and love you and you are never forgotten.
