28 years later, forever in our hearts! Not a day goes by that we don’t think of you. Last year our son Justin and his wife had their 1st child - a son named after his grandfather - Jeffery Scott Sanford was born on 4/23/18. We know Scott will continue to watch over our family and his precious namesake.

The world we live in has become increasingly dangerous and I fear for the men and women in blue. I pray for your safety every day,

We love and miss you Scott- gone but never forgotten.
