FHP Home

Today, I was telling my nine year old, how 42 years ago, I was in a wreck with my Mother and baby brother. Times were different and emergency personnel were not readily available. The highway patrol officer, Colonel Beech (or Beach?) took us all the way home and settled us in. I remember him carrying my brother and then me in his arms and helping my mother to get settled in our home. Thanks to email, I just wanted to pass on a thank you if he is still available after all this time. The kindness is still passed on today. You just never know where the rings from the tossed pebble will go.

NOTE from FHP: Unfortunately, Colonel Beach passed away some years ago. He was a remarkable leader and believed strongly in our motto of Courtesy, Service & Protection.
