Deputy Sheriff Samuel Robert Evans,

To wear the uniform and enforce the law harbors many hazards. Sometimes it is the malicious intent of those who would strike down an law officer or maybe it is a concomitant of driving a vehicle and working in traffic that claims our life. Unfortunately, too, the sacrifice sometimes is made in the unpredictable timing or confusion of an arrest. No matter the situation, to have died in the process of service to others deems the officer a gallant hero. We accept the risks for it is our lot. You are honored proudly and respected highly for you have earned your way as a soldier of the law. I render you, sir, a final salute.

Cpl. Ralph D. Fiorenza (Ret.)
