A Tribute to one of our fallen, you will forever be on our hearts.
When I start my tour of duty God, Wherever crime may be, as I drive the darkened streets alone,
Let me be close to thee. Please give me understanding with both the young and old. Let me listen with attention
until their story's told. Let me never make a judgment in a rash or callous way, but let me hold my patience
let each man have his say. Lord if some dark and dreary night,
I must give my life,Lord, with your everlasting love protect my children and my wife.
