My family and I are traveling in TN today and I saw the Officer Justin Maples Memorial Highway sign and had to look him up. My sincere condolences to his family, especially his wife and children. By now they are coming of age and I hope they realize that contrary to what the news shows, many people greatly admire LEOs for their courage and heart. You are in my prayers.
