It's hard for me to grasp that 13 years have passed since you were called home. Such a kind young man; so proud of the uniform - he had such great aspirations. Instead of wearing the blue, & raising his beautiful children, with his loving, young life, his life was harshly cut short. Called back into the station in an ice storm to complete paperwork on an earlier fatal accident (caused by the icy road conditions) I worked in the hospitality room as the funeral home, providing sandwiches & beverages at the visitation out of respect for his service, & so that his sweet, young, wife wouldn't have to have to worry about such incidentals in her time of sorrow.
It saddens me that your son & daughter have had to grow up without a daddy - but, in my opinion your beloved has done an extraordinary job. RIP Jesse. One day you will be reunited with your family. And, thank you for your service.
