Lakewood PD (Wa) lost four

Sgt. Mark Renninger, 39
Officers Ronald Owens, 37
Tina Griswold, 40
Greg Richards, 42
In Remembrance . . .
The Monument
I never dreamed it would be me
My name for all eternity
Recorded here at this hallowed place
Alas, my name, no more my face.
"In the line of duty" I hear them say
My family now the price will pay
My folded flag stained with their tears
We only had those few short years.
The badge no longer on my chest
I sleep now in eternal rest
My sword I pass to those behind
And pray they keep this thought in mind.
I never dreamed it would be me
And with heavy heart and bended knee
I ask for all here from the past
Dear God, let my name be the last.
by Sgt. George Hahn, LAPD (Retired)
