When an officer's watch ends I alway manage to end up here on the memorial page for my great grandfather. While I never met him there many stories that are passed in my family. It is awesome to see all the reflections from those that have also lost loved one but also fellow officers simply remembering a man they never met. The CPD is wonderful.
