I have the pleasure of hosting your wife and oldest daughter in LA this weekend. Eden is a member of my support group Blue_Wives_Matter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that honors fallen officer's spouses and children, regardless of cause of death. I reached out to her shortly after you were killed and offered her the support of the many members in our support group who have also lost their LEOs but this is the first time I have had the pleasure to meet her and your daughter.

I have been sending your children law enforcement patches every month as part of my Patches of Honor program. It is a monthly reminder that neither you, nor your family, will ever be forgotten. Eden says the kids are building quite the collection! This warms my heart to hear. Tomorrow they will be meeting with an Anaheim police detective and they will be gifted with a special challenge coin each and what they don't know is that he is also giving her challenge coins for each one of your kids to take home to them too. And he is going to let her know that APD welcomes your family as a part of their family anytime they need anything and anytime they come back to visit me or Disneyland in the future. They honor their word too. They have been working with me and other families in my support group for years now and anytime I call them they always make themselves available.

You are watching over your family from Heaven Caleb and we are watching over your family here on Earth and I promise you we always will. God Bless you up above and may he hold you up in his arms forever for the incredible sacrifice you made in the early morning hours of May 29th, 2020. You are missed every single day by so many but by Eden the most.
