Brother Brey,

Yesterday we laid a wreath at your grave site. The program that runs this is the Fallen Heroes Wreath Program. Although the Officers that honored you yesterday never worked with you, we want you to know that you have not been forgotten. Your locker is still waiting for you at police headquarters. Rest In Peace Brother.
