Almost everyday I hear news across the country about another officer being killed in the line of duty. The news is always heartbreaking, but seems a little easier to read when it’s not one of my personal friends. Today, I woke up to news that an officer from Kent PD had been killed. So close to home. I have friends who work for that department, so of course started sending each of them text messages to make sure they are okay. I hear back from a few of my friends, but one of my friends @el_diego_mp
, no response. I assume he’s probably just getting bombarded with messages like mine. Then I hear the gut wrenching news, you were the one killed. My heart breaks for your wife and kids. My heart breaks for your department. You will be terribly missed, but remembered as a great husband and father, a standout LEO, someone that was all smiles and laughs and lived life to the fullest. We know you will always be watching over us. Brother, we love and miss you. We have your watch from here.
