His quick wit.
His natural athletic abilities.
His love for God.
His love to have fun.
His love for his family.
His love for his friends.
His love for people in general.
In the months ahead, we will have several chances to get together to remember Dave’s commitment to serve and protect.
To remember his strength and courage to do the right thing.
And to remember the sacrifice he made for people he didn’t even know in order to make this world a better, safer place for those of us who are left behind.
At the end of this post, I have listed the memorials that are planned locally for the next months – leading up to our trip to Washington, DC to honor Dave as they add his name to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.
We would love for you to join us for these local memorials.
Because we are honoring Dave.
AND because we are honoring all of my brothers and sisters who wear the Blue uniform.
We are honoring your commitment to serve and protect.
We are honoring your strength and courage to do the right thing.
We are honoring the sacrifice you make every day in order to make this world a better, safer place for the rest of us.
We are also honoring the sacrifice your family and friends make every day as they love and support you.
Our Family in Blue loves together, laughs together, cries together and stands together.
We remember. We honor.
We never forget.
