Hey bud,
I am at P-22 Waycross getting ready to teach Below 100 at a network meeting and I was scrolling around ODMP for stats. I looked you up again and realized that tomorrow will be the anniversary date of when God called you home. Twelve years ago, WOW! I pass by the memorial to you in the case in the lobby at P-23 almost daily and think of you. SFC Phillips, Sgt. Kicklighter, and Cpl. Young made a good group of NCOs back in the day at P-23 I must say.
You are deeply missed and your legacy lives on in the hearts of those that were so privileged to have known you.
Love you man,

Lt. Clay Kicklighter
Georgia State Patrol
