Constable West, you are the epitome of someone who just doesn't want to quit. You dedicated your life to service and you will not fail. It's absolutely tragic that your service ended in such a way, but what else could have stopped you? I don't think ANYTHING. You are a true hero and although I wish you had been able to enjoy retirement, I admire and respect your dedication.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.
