As I come to the last Conference as your President I wanted to thank you so much for the support you have provided me over the last four years. I reflect on the first year of my first term and remember how nervous I was. It was a deep desire to provide you with a Professional Association, one that you could be proud of.
First, God blessed me so much with the Executive Board and Conference Committee I was able to serve with for my four years. People who donate their time and put in so much work that is not seen to make sure your conferences go as planned, without them the Homicide Investigators would not be the great organization it is. Troy Fuller, David Gilmore Troy Luecke and Dean Holtke made up the Executive Board during my terms in office, most of the things put into effect was their suggestions and ideals. I say this to indicate that moving forward I know the Homicide Investigators of Texas is in good hands.
One thing that must not be ignored is the importance of the Conference Committee, Brian Harris, Vi Shaffer, Rusty Stillwagoner, Twanaha Rea, Kathy Manning and although he is not currently on the Conference Committee, Marc Gray, I can not thank you all enough for the sacrifice of the time and effort to make H.I.T. keep moving forward as it has. I would be remiss if I did not mention the spouses of the above people who helps every conference and cares for this Association as much as those who serve on the board. Thank you all.
Lastly I want to acknowledge the people that mean the most to us, you the members. The job you do day in and day out is a thankless job that often goes unrecognized or overly scrutinized. I have used this verse in my opening statements many times and I believe it is something we need to take to heart, “Blessed are the peace keepers for they will be called children of God.” We all know all things can be interpreted, but my interpretation of that scripture is that God has your six. Just remember, you work for God, people can “arm chair quarterback” all they want, but our final judging will come from our Lord and Savior, keep up the good fight and from my heart, thank you so much for your dedication and your families sacrificing their time with you.
Although our founder Leland Wood was not able to attend as often as he liked, he continues to be an asset to me that I can never thank him enough for. Thank you Leland for trusting in my judgment for taking care of your vision.
I will close out my letter to my wife, Joyce who urged and pushed me to take on the tasks of being President, who provided support and suggestions for your good. Without her support this job would be more difficult. I love you.
Please be careful out there, watch each others back and return home at night. I will still be around for four more years and I look forward to visiting you as Past President.
