Reflections for Officer David L. Kohler

I never met you Sir. I sure wish I had. I am privileged to know your children, Catherine, Robin and David. All my life Catherine has been my best friend. You have some of the most remarkable children and they love and cherish you everyday. I am so honored to be a part of your family who I love as mine. Thank you for your service sir. Your daughter Catherine is soon to retire from Los Alamitos Police Dept. I know you will be there in spirit.

You are my father and I am so proud of WHO you were and WHAT you stood for. I have missed you every day since your EOW in 1960 and have lived my life in a way that I hoped you'd be proud of ... And you would so love your grand kids!!

I love you!!
