Officer Lang, PST Lang, I remember us riding together taking accident reports and you talking about your three girls at the time, how much you loved your girls. I remember us riding around the city handling calls, then we would head to the Pyramid for traffic control after a Grizzlie's game. We stayed laughing at something going in the city. You kept a smile on your face, always sweet and caring with that soft sweet voice. I'll always remember you, love you and keep you in my heart. You are truly missed. Love You, Love You, Love You
