Thank you, Ofc. Mazzie.

I wasn't a policeman, even a thought to my parents... well, they're alive now. Apparently they were born several years after your untimely passing... and now, much to their chagrin, I'm a police officer, myself.

Thank you for your service. According to the Courier-Journal, your wife and kids survive you.

And from a Brother in Blue, thank you.
