I would have loved to print the write ups I received from there chief's - they describe the great service and hard work each individual performs on a daily basis.

I forgot to excuse my husband who was in the hospital, and therefore I was on the mic. I would like to Thank all our Local Agencies for there support in returning phone calls and emails, to provide me with the information that I needed to be able to finish the job my husband started. Thank you all - and we hope this will be a yearly tradition.
