As soon as the Judge left the court, I shook G’s hand. I then stood up and walked forward to Mr H, who is a small built, athletic kind of man. I put my arms around him and picked him up off the ground. I think I kissed him, whilst trying to say thank you, whilst crying. I put him down and went to Miss R. I again picked up this little Lady, I kissed her, again trying to express my, gratitude, my thanks, my appreciation. It is my belief that such small words, thank you, they are so small, but I do not and will not ever find other words to express my appreciation better than these.
I walked out of the courtroom, at which point I kissed all the female officers of the police. I think there were 4. I hugged HM, I hugged LM. The emotion was flowing, I was running on pure adrenalin. I forgot, I kissed my brothers. They had stood by me through thick and thin, a life time apart, but together when I needed them.
Thank you all.
