It was an honor and a privilege wearing your memorial pin for four days, and 300 miles, on the Tour de Force Bike Ride from Boston to NYC this past weekend...I am not law enforcement, but believe strongly in the TDF cause to support police officers that pay the ultimate sacrifice protecting our are a hero! You were with me every mile, and that button will be on my shirt next year as we trek from West Point to Annapolis.
Godspeed and may God bless all those that miss and love you.
