I just read all of the reflections for Deputy Brown. What a tragic loss for his family, many friends and colleagues. My NO PAROLE LETTER will be going in the morning mail. Amanda: I am so very sorry that you and your family keep having to re-live your pain. There shouldn’t even be ONE parole hearing! I pray that the parole board members are able to see beyond the layers of aged skin, and frailty.
Deputy Brown, Thank You for your service and sacrifice! You are not forgotten.
God Bless You All.
