Your assailant(s) may have not been arrested or brought to justice, but they surely have/will face a much higher justice in a different place. Rest in peace always knowing that your memory, service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

To Ronnie, I remember you and I being bunk mates in the Police academy. Serving the citizens to Alabama but most of all I remember you as a person and more over a friend. You have been in my thoughts and prayers since you gave your life.

If anyone reads this The night Ronnie was killed he took my place that night he was suppose to be off but worked in my place. from the moment I heard of his passing I went and never left his side until he was to rest.

I stood honor guard for 8 hours at his coffin in honor of him and what he did for me.
