You never knew me and we never had a chance to meet. It was meant to be though that what you were is a part of me now. I too have gone into Law Enforcement(17+yrs). I too try to stand up for what is right everyday I wear that uniform. You see you never knew me but I knew about you and hopefully I have done right by you. I am the one who help get your name added to the wall in Washington D.C. because it was the right thing to do. I will be there with your Daughters in May when you are honored in Washington D.C. I will do this with the greatest of Honor in my heart for you because you gave all of your heart and Honor for us.

You may have never known me but you are with me every day.
