in lieu of our normal happy things, today’s post is dedicated to all of our boys and girls in blue. last evening, one of dee’s friends, police officer brad fox, was shot and fatally wounded after responding to a hit and run accident in conshohocken, pennsylvania. brad was a loving husband and father. he served two tours of duty in iraq as a marine…he was a hero. words cannot express how much he will be missed by his family and friends. this post is for brad and all other fallen officers.
