This is Sgt. Rollin Nolan Scully's End of Watch. It's terribly painful to listen to but so deserving. Our son IS a true hero and someone who you could look up to no matter your age. He was loving, generous and oh so kind. And all he wanted to be was a public servant. As always we love each of you, and Nolan does too ❤
