No one could ever fully figure out what was going through the mind of your murderer, I am just grateful actions were taken that prevented him from killing anyone else.

The void you leave can never be filled, but so long as your family keeps you in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone from them. You are a hero.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
