A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Placer County Sheriff's Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Though I'm a civilian, I'm still much more than extremely honored to be the first to leave a reflection in your well due respect. How can it possibly be ignored that your ultimate sacrafice was somehow a direct calling from the man above? It may seem untimely and senseless but I truly believe that he made it absolutely clear by taking you on this particular day of all days. The exact same date 26 years later is well beyond just a simple coincidence. Obviously, the need for you to be reunited outweighed your purpose here. Though, your loved ones and friends must naturally find that all too selfish as anyone would, we have to keep faith that all of the answers will someday come. I wish, hope and pray that your family will be given the utmost strength during these dark times and I thank you for your relentless and brave service of keeping us safe.
