    My name is Joshua, and in the Criminal Justice program at ITT Technical Institute. I’m not sure if I’m related to you or how if I am. It would be an honor to write a paper that I have due in a couple of weeks about you. I was more than surprised when I visited the wall today and seen an officer with the same last name as myself on it.

    Thank you so much for the service you did and the sacrifice you made.

    You were a good friend of my dad, me, my mom, my brothers, and my sister. You worked closely with my dad and I remeber the day you died like it was yesterday. I remember crying and seeing my father cry, that was the hardest thing I ever had to see. Today I am sixteen, and I wear the “All give some- Some give all” braclet in honor of ypu <3

    May you rest in peace.

    <3 a police officers daugher.
