Sheriff Moore,
On today the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but also when you served with the U.S. Army during World War II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
