To the family of Trooper Dees:
I saw the dedication in honor of Trooper Dees when watching the song Sound of Silence.

I am a retired highway patrol officer who had a partner killed in the line of duty from an accident and I was at the scene of an allied agency officer who was shot and killed. These are horrific events that we never forget.

It is a privilege to serve in law enforcement knowing the risks and making a commitment to serve and protect despite the risks. May I offer my belated condolences to you, Trooper Dees' family, and to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
May the Lord continue to give you peace and comfort as you remember your hero.
