26 yrs. ago today you were taken from me John Dear. And in 26 yrs. I have not forgotten you. I will never forget you. You brought me so much joy in the short time we had together. We were just beginning really. I was hopeful for the great life we were planning together. Thank you John Dear for your humor, your thoughtfulness and your warm embrace. Thank you for giving your all as a Police Officer to the community of Maywood. Because the cruelty of murderous animals/gangsters took you from us we carry on without you. You are forever missed!
