Lindora, after all these years I still cherish the late night small talks we would have when you and Sgt. White would stop by the 10th Precinct for a quick break or to complete paperwork. You were so kind and genuine. I didn’t know you well, yet I still feel blessed to have known you at all. I know for certain that you loved God with your entire heart and all your trust was in Him so I know you are just fine. Continue to rest well my sister in blue. Know that my heart smiles wide when I think of you.
