Well buddy, your name is now on the wall in Topeka and DC. Your wife and children are so beautiful and strong. I got to spend a brief moment with them at the candlelight vigil. You were a very bright light in a dim world, and I doubt you know how much you meant to so many.

I think of you daily and I love and miss you. Please continue to watch over us and keep us safe my dear friend.
