It has been a long time now. Detective Don (Means) and I went to the hospital to see you before they took you away. That was tough. You were a great detective supervisor and taught us well. We had a great detective division because of mentors like you and appreciate you recommending me to take your place in detectives when you were promoted to Lieutenant. You were above reproach and a great leader as well. Thank you for all that you did for all of us. You served with honor and distinction and was a fantastic peace officer, father and husband.

I remember him Fondly, whatever time was spent with him was an experience with a thoughtful, sincere, intelligent person. Everyone missed him. He was truly a Law Officer and a Gentlemen who left our world too soon. Honor forever.

I did not have the pleasure to work with Glenn, but this poem seems appropriate for those who did. I hope he is and has been resting in peace.

As We Look Back.

As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering .....
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us .....
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgement,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We're thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us.

Glenn, this honor to you has taken way to many years but it has finally come. Thanks for the good times and your leadership in the Patrol Division. My tribute to you:

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.
