Your daughter, Shirley, would be so proud to know of the recognition given to her beloved father as the hero she knew and loved. She shared many memories and wonderful stories of you with me and my sister when we were growing up, wish we could have meet you in person. I am honored to be your granddaughter.

Dear Deputy Driggers,

You have finally been recognized for the ultimate sacrifice that you, your family and your department made so many years ago. I can honestly say I know the loss of devastation and now know that since December 10, 1967 the life of your family changed forever. Your memory has remained in Dixie and Chad on more than one occasion mentioned your story in conversation. I am sorry it took so long, but I am glad to know you will be honored with Chad in Washington.

I hope that your family has healed over the years and at this point can only hope that our family will heal as time passes with the loss of Chad.

Thanks for your service to our county, state and country. You paid the ultimate sacrifice that your family is continuing to live with - life without you.

Respectfully yours,

Holly Reed
Widow of Capt Chad Reed 54-6
