I hope and pray your cowardly killers are brought to justice one day or at least identified for some sort of closure for your loving family. They may not have been identified as of yet, but they will surely, if not already face a much higher justice and authority one day. Rest in peace always knowing that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.
