Detective Miller, I thank you for your service in helping to protect one of America's greatest assets, it's railroads. You are truly a hero.

Though it does not say here, we can only hope and pray that your murderers faced true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless and may your eternal Rest be ever Peaceful, Brother.
