You were always so kind to me and I looked up to you. I wish things had been different with the department, but I see a bigger picture now that I'm out of there, and I never did blame you for any of it because I knew you had a good heart. May God continue to offer comfort to your family in your absence, and please look out for your deps and your officers.
