Hi Daddy,

I miss you extra this year and it made July particularly rough. You have 6 grandchildren now (2 from each of your 3 kids) and we make sure they’re growing up hearing about you. My brother, sister and I allowed the world to get in between us and we don’t really talk anymore. I dont talk to any of your family at all. Mom’s had it extra rough this year and could use some extra “dream visits” for your biggest hug.

We miss you every day as if 25 years was yesterday. We remember and honor how much you loved your job and helping people but some days we wish you were here to help us more. I hope people remember in times like now, when good officers are being taken for granted, that their sacrifice isn’t paid on the day their watch ends. It’s paid every day with the lives of their families they leave behind. These fallen officers cared for you, a stranger, that much that they believed you were worth saving and the risk of missing everything with their family.
Honor it.

We love you daddy.
