I miss you a ton. I think of you often & reflect on all those late night conversations we had. Whether it was us just shooting the breeze, or talking about the upcoming hunting season, it didn’t matter because it was always a good time. We cracked many jokes & shared many laughs.

You probably didn’t realize it at the time but you motivated me in ways other people couldn’t. You were one of the few to truly believe in me & what I would be capable of. I know you didn’t realize the extent your motivation meant to me. I wish I had shared this with you. Because of you, I made the decision to finally push myself out of my comfort zone & try to become a police officer. What I once thought was a dream became a reality 6 days after you went home to see our good Lord.

I didn’t ever get the chance to share this news with you, but I was thinking about you a lot today. Thank you for being such an inspiration to my life, my path, and my career. I will forever cherish the time we had on this earth & will forever hold you close in my heart friend. I can’t wait to see you again in Heaven my friend. Just know, you can rest in peace & be assured we have it from here brother.
