Matt and Alison,

So sorry to hear about your Dad. Cathy and I are in Florida and won't be able to attend the service but wanted you to know we were thinking about you and offer our condolences. I loved working with your Dad at LPD and was always impressed with how he did his job, whether it was in patrol or in the Detective Bureau. He was a cops cop and that is something to be very proud of along with all the time and effort he put into the golf outing so that kids with cancer had another resource for treatment and survival. Your Mom and Dad were fantastic people and they are missed.

Working with Steve at LPD was an honor. We had the same district for 4 yrs with him on nights and me on noons. He was great at sharing info on anything I needed to know about. He was a phenomenal officer who could control the most chaotic scene. When he went on to Detective Bureau, I was very happy whenever he got a case I worked on because I knew it was in the best hands. I had a ton of respect for him and my condolences to your family on your loss. He was a tremendous officer and person.
