When I look at your pictures I am reminded of you as a little boy in elementary school. When you came to Rowland at Southside-Ashpole Elementary School, you were quite but observant. After getting to know you, I could tell you had big dreams and high hopes. I liked how respectful you were and the signs you showed of being well raised unlike many of the youth in the school system today. And then one day I saw and talked with you at Lumberton High. I told you how proud I was of you for becoming a police officer. I was proud then and even prouder now. You should not have had to leave the way you did, leaving your loved ones the way you did. But God knew best and because you gave your life others are now safer in Robeson County. Rest in Peace and when you stand before God, I know he will say well done my good and faithful son.
