My Dear Friend Richard,

It has been over 21 years and I still miss you. During Police Memorial activities, I am reminded once more of the sacrifices made by you and the others on the too-long list of fellow officers. May your other friends and family find comfort in knowing that you left us doing something that you loved more than anything. God Bless and rest in peace.
