This year has already been tough to the members in public service who wear blue who we affectionately call police. Recently there was a loss in Hawaii where a suspect who suffered from some sort of mental issue and also called police a lot, shot and killed two Officers. As I am waking up from an over night shift and learn of another death and came to this site to learn more I instantly think of you!
This is your birthday month, Denise! Oh, how I wish that you where still here and we would run into each other at St. Aug. HomeComings... When I do make it back, I often reminisce we others over our class starting together and the plans that we had.

I will remember you always and I hope that you some how know.
