I never met you, but you continue to touch my life. Your community, agency, friends, Brothers and Sisters in blue, and most of all your Father, who I have had the honor of getting to know, keep your spirit alive. I am in awe of how hard he works to make a difference in the LE doubt it is where you drew your own calling to serve.

Until we meet on the other side...I will continue to honor YOU by honoring the badge.

Semper Fidelis, Slow Salute...
