Dearest Amy - Twenty-two years ago and your husband's memory, words and grin are still fresh in mybut I have the great times when Doug taught me so much about about life, animals, and the earth as a sacred being. He mentored me to achieve great communication with wildlife and connect with their spirits. From there, I grew in my career to serve mankind with clear communication and visions of kindness and healing. I say a Thank you prayer to Doug and please contiinue to be my animal guardian angel. They are a deep part of my spirit that guide me in my life. I am blessed that I had the great honor of knowing and loving Doug who blessed my career and made me so successful in life.

Doug, this week has been very tough one in our agency as we lost a female K-9 officer in the line of duty, which caused me to pause and reflect with all other officers that I have worked with throughout my career that were lost in the line of duty.

My friend, I remember the days when we worked together in north Houston and SE Texas in the late 1980s catching poachers on the Sam Houston National Forest.

Sadly, as in your case, I lost one of my officers in the line of duty under my command in 2002 due to a vehicle accident.

With a heavy heart to my brothers and sisters who have sacrificied before me, I will never forget you.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
