I love you dad. Im a police officer for Durham too. I hope your proud. My girlfriend and I are expecting our first son April 21st. Who knows maybe he will be the third generation. I want to name him Billy too, but you know how women are...sometimes you have to compromise. I wish you could be here to welcome your grandson into this world. Don't worry I will tell him of his grandfather and the great man you were. Im scared to be father. If I can be half the father you were to me, I will be doing pretty good. I wish you could meet my girlfriend Lauren, she is a great girl, the one you always you hope I would find one day. There is so much I want to say to you. I'll see how I feel after posting this and maybe there will be more post to come.

I know God watches over me, but I like to think your watching over me too as I wear the same badge you wore, patrol the same streets you patrolled.

Not a day goes by that I dont think of you.

I love you Dad.

Your son,

K.L Gregory
Durham Police Department, son of Billy T. Gregory
