I am so proud that you are honored in this way, for your courage and sacrifice. My Mother Maryanne was your niece. We heard the story all our lives.You were my Grandfathers brother, your wife was my Grandmothers sister. Everyone were "double cousins" in your immediate family.

The Sheriffs of Florida and their deputies will never forget the sacrifice you and your family made to uphold our laws and protect society.

Your name has been inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs and the National Law Enforcement Memorial and in our hearts. May you forever rest in peace.

A scripture inscribed on the Florida Sheriffs Law Enforcement Memorial:

"Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called the children
of God." Matthew 5:9

As your granddaughter who was born 32 years after your death, I honor your service and sacrifc to this country. Your son, William Robert Monroe, Jr, my Dad, and his 2 brothers and sister were deprived of your love and direction in their lives. Times were different in 1921, there was no safety net for your family who suffered much more then the loss of their loved one.

So proud to have you, my Grandfather, Sheriff William Robert Monroe recognized, honored and memorialized for your service and sacrifice to our great country.
