Treasure every day.

I was touched to see this memorial sitting at the edge of the Lake Washington Ship Canal just where the Burke Gilman Trail meets the Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel Company. A reminder to appreciate every day. I found this online from "The Officer Down Memorial Page Remembers . . ."
