Thank you Mr McCall for your service. You were murdered 1 month before I was born. Now I have two years left to retire as a Game Warden for the NCWRC. I thank the good lord for keeping me safe all these years doing the same thing you were doing that very day. Your memory will never be forgotten sir. Sad there wasn’t better justice of 6 years given to your murderer.
