Sergeant Carmikle, I just wanted to let you know how your wife still honors your memory and how she helps other fellow officers families get through these hard times!!!!! Just as law enforcement is a calling, she too has also fulfilled her calling. I have heard her seminar at least twice now and I am deeply moved every time.
Until we meet again, RIP Sergeant
