I stumbled across this today and so many memories of the Academy flooded my mind. You and I didn't become best of friends or even stay in touch once our careers got going but, in the way that only God's hand can manage, you made a distinct impression on me and the Officer I was to become.

Your easy nature and quiet confidence were a model for what a good cop should be. I wish I had gotten to know you better. I wish more people would have had the opportunity to as well.

I am praying for all the people who love and miss you as I write this. I trust that they know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and understand that they will see you again.
