Sergeant Narvaez,

I want you to know I met your daughter Juliann recently. She is the most charismatic, energetic, and positive woman one could ever hope to meet. The way she turned out most certainly has to do with your genetic and angelic guidance.

I wish I could have met you and heard about stories from “back in the day”. I know you are watching over your family still, and I hope to meet you in whatever the after life provides us all.

God bless you for your sacrifice and service to the county of Bernalillo. I hope the piece of filth who murdered you suffered a painful and miserable, long drawn out death.
