Your killers were convicted. They sit on death row. It is not fair that they live while you gave up so much because of them, but at least they will not hurt anyone else thanks to the sacrifice you made for everyone.

I honor you my brother. Thank you for protecting all of us. You "looked" like a policeman! Hopefully, justice will be swift and uninterrupted for your murderers. With brotherly love and respect, Jim Crotty (Former Richmond, VA Police Officer.)

I can't recall a worse day in my career than June 2, 1983. We worked the streets together for so long. No one ever understood why you left police work to go to the fire department, then back to police work. Of course the real reason is you loved police work. Your son has followed in your footsteps and would make you proud. RIP my friend.
