Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

To my Best Friend, My 618,

You taught me a lot over the years. You trusted me with your life many times as you stared down evil sitting next to you during an undercover operation. I always held my breath until I heard your voice on the other end of that phone saying "Princess, I'm ok." Well, it's my turn except this time "Princess is not ok!" I MISS YOU SO MUCH!!! I never thought I would see this day so soon!! Just know you are missed, you were loved, very respected, and honored as a true hero should be!!

I was once your Guardian Angel, Now you are mine!! Im just glad I got "Superman" as my Angel!! I can still drive fast!
