i never worked with or for the police. i never knew you. all the men in my family did 4 or 5 years in the military, then worked a factory type job until retirement. thats exactly what i did, too. except i'm far from retirement. now, my military days are 10 years ago. i rarely think about my military time. even when i do, i think about my friends and adventures. but then i ended up on the crew that did your charity race 5k run. i remember looking at your car, covered in flowers. i even took a picture of a little statue on your light bar. maybe 14 hours after the event, i was going over all my pictures and doing my photoshop thing and i noticed the coins. it's been 10 years since the last time i thought about the coins. i had no idea the police used the coin tradition. i learned a lot that day. not by asking people, but by watching them. i left you a penny. if i remember correctly, thats the correct coin to use.

no rank. joshua beaman.
i never knew him, and the man who signs my paycheck is irrelevant.
