15 years ago tonight you started your shift working 7pm marking in service to serve the citizens of Columbus working Zone 2 Evening Midwatch... You never got the chance to finish your shift and were taken from us by a drunk driver who unfortunately made a horrible choice getting behind the wheel.. I responded out to the scene that evening as a member of the Officer Support Team and remember that cold night like it was yesterday.. You are missed by so many and not forgotten Melissa! God Bless your family! #2145 forever-
