I met Officer Venus's family yesterday. I tried to be polite and offer my seat to his mother so they could all eat together. She insisted I remain seated and have lunch with them. The introduction reminds me of an old saying, ....no strangers, only friends who haven't met. The family is inspirational.

I'm delighted Deputy Sheriff Richard Drane shares this important date. I ask you to be proud of this and your accomplishments.
