Your long deserved rest is finally here! Your dedicated service will not go unnoticed. Shame you won't be able to enjoy your well deserved retirement and days with grandchildren! Rest in Peace...10-42.

The fact that you honorably spent so much of your life in the service of others is truly humbling and tells me all I need to know about you. Much respect Det. Simpson. May your departure bring your family at home and at work together in comfort and healing. Rest in Peace Sir.

Mr. Simpson, thanks for the many years of service. Your family and friends are hurt from the loss, but the wonderful memories as a husband, father, and public servant will always live. Rest in Peace.
