Having just read your partner Officer Johnson’s LODD and leaving a reflection for him for his incredibly heroic actions, I couldn’t help but to return to you and reiterate what a hero you are. Not for just your sacrifice and overall actions as a police officer, but for your actions on this very day just nine months before your own heroic sacrifice. I hope you and Officer Johnson are together watching over your families and your law enforcement brethren from above. God Speed and God Bless both of your families.
