Rest in peace Ofcr. Smith.  I'll keep you, your family, friends and co-workers in my thoughts and prayers.


A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

"I'd rather be a failure at something I enjoy than be a success at something I hate." -- George Burns
