May You Continue to Watch Over All In Blue and Be A Guardian Angel. You were a good man with empathy for others, respect for all - rich or poor and you truly wanted to serve your community. God had a bigger plan and called you home early. May your family have the peace of knowing they will be reunited with you again one day in His Kingdom. Thank you for your service!
