Sincere Sympathy to the daughters of Officer Cousette. I did not know your Dad, but have the greatest respect for a young man who was an officer of the law, and one who took responsibility for his children. As you young daughters go forward from today, remember your father fondly and the things he tried to teach you. Be strong young women as a memorial to him. God Bless the Cousette family and keep you as you allow the Lord to comfort you.
