My most deepest and sincerest condolences are extended to Officer Redding's family and friends! When I saw your name on the Police memorial located by COSI and your picture in Central Police HQ, It was grim and sad reminder just how precious life is! It was especially hard seeing your last name. Sincerely,
Officer Steven Redding #2027

I did not know you from face nor voice, God needed you in
heaven, you had no choice. I talk to you each night in prayer, in hopes that one day I too will be there. I want to walk with you through the heavens hand in hand, that together we may look down upon this land. I want you to hold me and kiss my face like you did so many times before you left this place.I want you to be proud of the person I've become, through lifes many struggles I have overcome.And so Daddy I want you to know I love and still think about you even though it was long ago and you I did not know. I will go on with my life day by day, until God takes my hand and leads me your way.
