For his 4H project, my son chose your department (one from each state), asking for a patch, for his collection. An officer from your department, Kevin Tindle, of the Training Divsion, took the time to write my son a letter, and send it, along with his card, and a patch from your department. I am grateful for this. There are fine men and women carrying on your calling, at your department. I'm sure you were a fine man, and I wish your family the best. Thank you for your sacrfice.

Rest, brother.
