I was in line at Starbucks tonight in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. When I got to the window to pay, the cashier told me that someone inside had paid for my coffee. The cashier handed my coffee to me, along with a decal. The decal had your department's name on it and your name across the badge. I never met you, but it seems you have left an impression. I looked inside through the window and saw a young girl that had paid for my coffee and given me the decal. You have people out here keeping your memory alive. Rest in Peace Sir! We will take it from here!
