RIP Uncle Don, I remember the day I met you and you were, without a question the center of attention. Your presence was intoxicating and I only wish I was old enough to get to know you at the time. I knew how much of an amazing influence you were and hearing stories at your memorial service blew me away at the young age of 8. Putting uncle Dean in check after making fun of someone with a broken down and rusty old car only made me admire you so much more. I met you once and knew you were special the first time I met you. I have a piece of jewelry just like your son and most people think I wanted it to be cool and look like your son... Haha this was part of it but in reality you were the first person I knew that passed away and the first person to make a lasting impression on me. Im having another jewelry piece made in memory of another loved one that has been an influence on me as well. Ive seen this memorial page before but have never seen the reflection part, only seemed fitting to look over the reflections as I contact the charter school named after you for a summer job opportunity. Cant wait to meet you again Uncle Don Corleone

In my jewelry box is a cherished badge with Officer Marquez's picture , given to me by his brother in my organ booth at the Cell, a few years back. Tonite I was ecstatic to learn of the the mounted patrol horse honored with his name on the WGN Good News show. Donald will never be forgotten.

Another example of how even the simplest of police work can lead to tragedy. Your dedication to duty serves as an example for the CPD. I'll remember you in my prayers on your anniversaty. Thank you for your service.

Remembering you today and forever. You are the greatest hero of my time. I love you and will continue loving God and helping people the way you did. I know you're standing guard at the main gate in heaven waiting for the next angel to enter. I dreamed one night of seeing you and mom together, can hardly wait til I am re-united with both of you. Love you and miss you so much.
