Gio, you and your family are in my thoughts. Keep strong. You are just like your uncle, brave.

To this Deputy's family.....I am glorified by the strength shown by Deputy Settle's family and co-workers who are fighting to keep the killer behind bars. It shows the world that your loved one is NOT forgotten in any way, shape, or form. I am touched by the daughter of this brave man. Even though she never met him.....she shows her love for her father. The current Sheriff shows his determination to see to it that justice continues to be served.

I have nothing but respect for all of you....except the killer of course.

I hope the the Indiana Parole Board heard you all.

I have family in are protecting my people, too.

Dad, You never got the opportunity to meet me, but I know you in my heart and remind your grandchildren everyday what a hero their grandpa was. Each day I look at your picture and medals displyed on my wall and hope that I am making you as proud of me as I am of you. I stand taller knowing that I am your daughter. You will never be forgotten. All my love dad!

your daughter

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Deputy Settles.
