My deepest condolences to the family and friends of brave Detective Sergeant Tom Smith.  God comfort and keep them well all their lives.


Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.
