To the family and friends of Officer Cole,

Although I cannot join your gathering, I want you to know that I'm sorry you lost someone very special to you.

He was serving our community, and we should all be appreciative.

Police officers and firefighters put their lives on the line every day to protect the public at large. I had a relative who was a deputy sheriff who often spoke of the things he saw on duty. The average citizen would never see or even begin to fathom.

I thank the stars that there are men and women out there doing a job that you seem to under-appreciate. I couldn't do what they have to do.
