You have not been forgotten and are a true hero. Your name now appears on the wall of the new Chicago Police Memorial on the Lake front where it is enscribed with honor and dignity. Keep watch over your loved ones and those officers still out on patrol.

My cousin Don was inspirational in my becoming a law enforcement officer. He enjoyed his work. When I was a young police explorer, Don shared his CPD Training Bulletins with me so that I could "brush up and be ready" when I came on the job.

I miss all the New Years dinners where Don would come over and watch the bowl games with us. I miss his humor and his outlook on life.

I continue to remember Don and the inspiration that he was to me as I now serve as a law enforcement officer. To honor his memory, I have made numerous trips to the National Police Memorial in Washington, DC. While there, I would make etchings of his name that is engraved on the Memorial.

I am extremely grateful that Don's star was finally retired to the Chicago Police Department's Honored Star Case in 2006. With the completion of the Chicago Police Gold Star Family Memorial Park, Don's name and his legacy will now be honored in his home city as well.

Don is gone, but will never be forgotten.
