I had the distinct honor of escorting your son during our Memorial Ceremony this year, where you were honored. With a tear in my eye as I listened to him say how young he was when you were taken from this earth, I couldn't help but reach over and hug him. I too have a son the same age that your son was when you paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect us all. Rest in Peace dear brother. Your memory will continue to live on in the hearts of your family, including your brothers and sisters in blue.
