Here we are almost to police officers memorial week again. 39 years and it seems like yesterday.
Some people probably wonder why I don't move on after all these years my dear brother. My one promise I made you is I would never forget or let you be forgotten. As long as I am alive and able I will keep that promise. Miss you brother.
