Don, I hope you are having a heavenly Christmas while keeping a watch over all of us down here. I can’t believe it has been 19 years already. I know God has made you one of his angels to protect us. You are never forgotten and are spoke about often. I continue to pray for peace for your family and that I know one day we will all be reunited in Heaven.

Continue to Rest In Peace brother!

It was a rainy Sunday night. It was 23 December 2001. My home telephone rang and dispatch informed me that the Chief of Police in Wilmington wanted me to call him. Two days later, Don passed away. It has been 17 years now, but we will never forget Don or his family.

Rest in Peace my friend.

Hey Mr. Don, finally on my own now with my agency. Already been through some crazy stuff. Wish I could tell you all about it, but I'm sure you've been watching out for me. Miss you and love you.

Hey Mr. Don, I finally got sworn in on 20 March, 2017 with my agency. I've been in FTO now for just over a month. Everything has been great, nothing too extreme, yet. Wish I could tell you all about it. It's also National Police Memorial Week and you've been on my mind. I just ask that you continue to watch over me and Daddy as we carry out our tours of duty and even off duty. Love you and miss you
