Dad, today I had to let you go in person. There was no way to find the words and get thru at the service so I will leave it here I have put my trust and faith that you will be with me from here on in spirit and watch over us. You were the best Dad and I was privileged to have been able to call you my Dad. I love you. Rest Easy and I hope you enjoy all which we sent with you. You are my Hero, My Dad, till I see you again. ❤

It has been a privilege to really get to know John these last couple of months. It seems to me he loved our country. He stood by justice. He was proud of being an officer of law. The stories he told me I am sure were highlights in his life and I feel blessed to have heard them.. John had a beautiful smile his eyes shimmered and he would light up the room. I will miss that smile. I know he will be missed greatly by his family. My deepest sympathy goes out to all of you.

My dad worked with John at the Harlandale Police Dept. for many years, I had the privilege of meeting John at an early age. Having spent alot of time at the station I learned that John and most the men were of a caliber that exemplified everything good in a man. My condolences to family and friends. RIP John
