Many years ago now but it seems like yesterday Ranger Guffey that you protected me when I was to testify before a Grand Jury. The location was San Saba TX and you came out to our house and drove me to the Courthouse. Not only that but you stayed with me and made sure no harm came to me. You were my hero then and you are my hero now. I was crushed when I heard of your murder. God bless you.
