You was always a nice officer, tried to help me find an address and stopped to see if i was okay when i was having phone issues when i pulled off to the side of the road so i wouldn't get pulled over for having my phone in my hand. I will always remember that. Thank you for always being kind and caring and thanks for your service. You put a print on my heart gone but never forgotten.
