    Long time no talk too! Hope you and your family are enjoying the 4th of July. I haven't been on here for sometime, between remodeling the kitchen, I'm still living out of boxes, and were eating out a lot, to working and family, things have been so crazy. We BBQ and had family over today, it was really nice. Hope things are well with you. Take care!

    I just wanted to share the poem below as I found it in some paperwork put aside in the attic the other day and ran acrossed it.

    This poem was written after getting my wife’s 19 years perspective of being a police officer’s wife.

    “He Does it For You!”

    He doesn’t do it for the money,
    Cause surely there’s something better to do,
    He says, “Someone has to do it!”
    So really, he does it for you.

    His eight to twelve hours is from call to call,
    From a murder to a cat in a tree,
    You say he’s never around when you really need him,
    But without him, where would you be?

    You curse him when you get a speeding ticket,
    And scream there’s something better he could do,
    But have you looked at how many deaths there are on the highways,
    So really, he’s doing it for you.

    He’s always seeing so much bad in the world,
    He really doesn’t know what to do,
    He wonders sometimes if it’s even worth it,
    But he knows he has to do it for you.

    Each day when he leaves for work,
    And I always kiss him good-bye,
    I don’t know if I’ll see him again,
    Cause the day might be the day he dies.

    So many times he comes home from work,
    And I see a small tear in his eyes,
    I ask him what is the problem dear?
    And he says another innocent person has died.

    You always say a cop isn’t human,
    Cause at a tragedy he’s cool from the start,
    But you don’t have to live with him,
    And watch his mind and heart break apart.

    I remember one hot June night at work,
    His supervisor came, “Your husband’s been hurt!”, he said,
    It was such a long ride to the hospital,
    They wouldn’t say if he was alive or dead.

    Crime is always on the increase,
    The streets a battle ground,
    And when one in “Blue” is slain,
    At the funeral-taps will sound.

    He’ll lay in a flagged draped coffin,
    An honor for those who die for this land,
    Just like the Army, Navy and Marines,
    He died by the enemies hands.

    Most ordinary citizens won’t be at the funeral,
    But you’ll see plenty of people wearing blue,
    You’ll see dozens of marked patrol cars,
    Honoring the one who died for you.
