Dad, it is great to finally follow in your footsteps in becoming a Deputy Sheriff. I think of you everyday and I know you are watching over me. When times are tough I think of you to help me through those tough times. It brings great joy to my heart to hear that you are not forgotten and to hear how much of a difference you made in people's lives within the community as well as the department. I am going to do everything I can to make you proud. With the help from you and my fellow academy recruits, I know I can achieve the goal of Deputy Sheriff. I love and miss you Dad. You will never be forgotten.
