God Bless Greg Carnicle, his wife and four children and all other family and friends. As they are and will be hurting for quite some time.

In these horrible days of violence and terror against innocent people and police officers performing their duties.

A tragedy such as this, after 31 years of service, 56 years of age, and two months to retire, was any of this worth the cost.

God Bless the Peace Keepers!
