Steve, Today is Memorial Day 2018. I went to Rose Hills to visit and pay respects to father when I saw a fallen wreath across the road. I had no idea who it belonged to but I knew it needed to be up righted out of respect for whomever it was delivered for. I had now idea it was for a fallen officer. My family tree has no less than 5 law enforcement officers in it. I have respect for the Badge and what it stands for. The fact that I came across your fallen memorial today and knew the right thing to do was correct it comes from a good mom who taught us right. Yes she is one of the five officers. Rest in peace Steve knowing that the job you did and what you stood for will always be respected by others.
