Rest in peace Sergeant Yeazel. The circumstances of your death, untimely that it was leaves one to reflect. Domestic abuse, domestic violence, marital discord, whatever it's sad and quite tragic when any law enforcement agent is suddenly taken from this world. Your loving family, fellow comrades and friends all miss you and continue to hold you in the most humblest and in high esteem for a job well done.
