The same sacrifices that Officers faced in the early 20's are still occurring today in LE. I am saddened to read that this Officer who had many years of life left with his family was tragically killed by a violent criminal. He is not forgotten!

Nearly every day someone asks me about my name, and every time they do I share the heroic story of the man I was named after, my great-grandfather. I wish you were here to see the wonderful family you have created, a family that remembers and proudly shares your story.

Although I never got to meet you, I like to think that the profession you chose and the character you possessed has been passed onto me, your great-granddaughter. I hope that as I begin my career in the law your memory and sacrifice will be a reminder of why I wanted to become a lawyer and how I can use my education to bring peace and justice to our world.
