In memory of a fallen brother

Today was a crappy day. It was the memorial for my friend and brother officer, Chris Kilkullen. Chris was an officer with the Eugene, Oregon police, and lost his life when he was shot by a woman with no criminal background. Of course, now she's claiming she's mentally ill, hoping to avoid the death penalty.
The memorial was fitting to a fallen hero, even if it would have embarassed him. The only time I cried was when the they did the last radio call, which went something like "Station 1 ti 1-Mary-18 (pause) Units stand by for roll call. 1-Mary-18 (pause) Attention units, 1-Mary-18 is secure, gone but not forgoton, rest in peace Chris, rest in piece.
May he never be forgotton Rest In piece brother, I miss you, and will never forget the time we went to your little sisters first middle school dance in uniform, and the bright red her face turned after we walked in & said we were looking for her...
