A Father's Pride

My third daughter, Allie, is on the right side of the law. She was recently sworn in as a Deputy Sheriff after a grueling testing period. Her testing was both personal and professional. She is married, has one daughter, and is a talented musician with a heart for helping hurting people. Her sweet demeanor and slender frame belie the fact that she is as tough as nails and can physicality subdue someone twice her size. She now joins the ranks of those sworn to serve the public. Her aunt, and my sister, just retired from a long career as a Chaplain in the Federal Prison system, so Allie now takes up the mantle. Thanks to all who serve and put their lives on the line everyday to uphold the Constitution and preserve the rights and safety of the Communities in which they serve. 


  1. Nathan,
    I know she will be a blessing to the Sheriff's Department! I will keep her in my prayers!

  2. Diana, Thank you so much for the kind words.
