My grandpa used to tell me about you when I was growing up, he said there was a whole line of children that walked behind as you were carried to your place of rest, he said you were a courageous and honorable Police officer that many people had a great deal of respect for! I wish I could've met you! Someday maybe we will! I love you! And if BIG HANDSOME GRANDPA is up there with you tell him I said hi and I love and miss him very much!
