    We love you very much and you are in our thoughts every minute of every day. Life will never be the same without you the memories we have of you are what get us through our days.

    I just Indexed your obituary. As you witness from Heaven what is going on lately I cannot be more grateful for persons such as yourself and your comrades in uniform who protect this citizenry. Of course mistakes are made. We are humans after all.
    But there are those of us who are constantly in awe of what you all do for us. Who else would willingly pursue a stolen car during inclement weather? Who puts their lives on the line responding to “unknown problems” or person with a gun?
    And the spouses and families of these same wonderful people … the sacrifices they make. I add my prayers to the many that have been offered on behalf of your wife, twins, and families.
    Thank you Officer Charles B Skinner!
