These are some pics from 4/11/11, when we went to Memphis to meet Chief Gooden to finish up paperwork and for Byron to take his Oath of Office.
Byron's Dad was able to give him the Oath, a very special moment.
Emma had to get in on the action. Loves her Daddy.
Chief Victor Gooden. He and I talked for months while Byron was either at work or sleeping and we were able to get paperwork done. He is a wonderful man!
Byron's Mom, Dad, (brothers) Ronnie and Jimmy. Ronnie's wife Dana and Byron's sister Kim and her husband Daniel weren't able to be there. Our nephews Brandon and Cameron were in school.
My Dad and Mom. My sister, Becky and our nephew Laine weren't able to be there either.
It was a really special day. The Oath of Office is very special and Byron was glad we all could be there. Chief Gooden and the Lieutenant who witnessed his commissioning were also very proud. This whole ceremony brought tears to our eyes.
