  14. Am going to miss your service Lew as I am on the Colorado State Fair Rodeo Committee and that is where I will be Friday evening. If I couldn’t be at your memorial the Rodeo is probably the next most appropriate place for me to celebrate your life. You will be in my heart and thoughts as I honor you. You were a good man and good friend. Our discussions about the American west , horses , law enforcement , and what we shared in common with our family backgrounds will always provide me with precious memories.

You were the kind of man I would hope I could be.
