I KNOW words are never enough, but I am thinking of you all. Remember that life is measured by love and not by days.

You have my condolences and sincerest sympathy.

Since his retirement from the Police Dept. I have thought of him often. Not only was he one of the finest men I ever worked with, but he was a true gentleman.

The world is not as good a place today as it was last week. He will truly be missed, but always remembered.
