Officer Duthie,
I also didn't know you but I did know your daughter from school as a child so when I heard about your passing, it hit me hard to imagine what your daughter must have been going through. Every time I see the sign post on the road with your name, I remember back to the day I heard. I remember the details of the bridge out even 48 years later. I honor you and all others like you that serve the people. Where would we be without you?
God bless those you left behind.

Brother Duthie,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue
