Well it has been 9 years David, 9 years. A lot has happened like I have retired from LE after 13 1/2 years. I think about you and our wonderful friendship almost daily. I wave at you at your resting place every time I visit my dad, y'all are just across the road from each other. I reflect back on our great working relationship in Burnet County the 5 years I was there. They were great times. One of the best place I actually loved to work because of people like you David. You will never be forgotten in my Heart, Mind, and Memory. Your were/are my Brother in Law Enforcement and with you being a Mason and me being an Eastern Star we are bonded as Brother and Sister as well. We will always be connected forever.
Love You My Brother,
Deputy Laura Leeds - Retired
