You had a badge,
that you wore proud.
What you did was important,
though you never said this out loud.

Respect did not come,
from the wages you were paid.
Or from callous statements,
that in the press were made.

Respect is in the homage,
shared by those who truly know.
Your service is what kept,
light in the world aglow.

Detective Colver was my grandfather. He was killed before I was born, therefore I never knew him. I know about him through my grandmother and mother. The gun that killed him is on display at the J M Davis Arms and Historical Museum in Claremore, OK.
