At the time of your death, I was in nursing school with your wife. I can remember attending your funeral with other classmates from the School of Nursing at MUW. The love and support that was shown to your family after your loss was tremendous.

This week, you and your wife have been on my heart a lot, as I prepared to say goodbye to two more law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. Please know that your service is still recognized and that the family you left behind is still prayed for by name. Godspeed, Agent Hank McLeod. You may be gone, but you are not forgotten.
