Thank you for all the kind words over the years. After 43 years, I still remember the night that he left for work for the last time. He has been missed every day since. Over the years I have gotten to talk to several people that knew him as a young man and while on the force. According to their testimony, he loved police work. I am humbled to see a site like this dedicated to the brave men and women of law enforcement.
