The horrid filth who murdered you should never see the light of freedom again. Lord knows, your family and friends won't.

Corrections Officers have one of the toughest jobs in the law enforcement/public safety fields and it takes a very special person to be able to do that job. I thank you for your sacrifice both before and after your vicious murder.

I also thank you for your time serving the United States. In every way, you truly are a hero, Brother.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace.

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.
