Special Agent Samuel Cowley:
It is so sad that the name of Baby Face Nelson is so known. It is your name Special Agent Samuel Cowley
that should be known. You are a hero and a man to be looked up to. May you rest in peace and thank you and your family for the ultimate sacrifice. WE are a better people today because you walked among us yesterday.

Agent Cowley, 30 years after you gave your all protecting us, I met and worked with your nephew R Adams Cowley MD. We worked together 20 years. He often shared the story of your contributions and you were a source of great pride to him. We went together to Quantico to see your name listed with honor on the wall. Because of his closeness to your memory we worked to develop the medical capabilities for current and future FBI agents. He changed medicine as we knew it and became known as the Father of Shock Trauma worldwide. He has since joined you up there, and I hope you two have the time to make up for that which was lost here.

Much respect for those that give their all for what they beleve in...

Friend of the Cowley family.

Because of you and your dedication to Law Enforcement, one of the most ruthless criminals of our time was eliminated. Thank you for all you did and may you rest in Heaven for eternity. Godspeed my brother.
