January 2020 Update:
Thank-you to everyone who donated towards our GoFundMe appeal. To date we raised $7362.51. The memorial is built, consisting of a semicircular path containing flowering plants and shrubs. An illuminated flagpole proudly flies the stars and stripes and benches are set. A plaque will be added to one of the boulders with image of Deputy Dhaliwal.

We have begun our fundraising efforts to develop a permanent site in honor of the life of Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal. He was a true example of "Service before Self." We have received many great ideas for a design of a place to enjoy a quite moment in meditation, a prayer, or personal reflection. We miss his kindness, his light-heartedness but most importantly, his God-loving soul. From our community, to the Sikh community, the Harris County Sheriff Department and Harris County MUD #130, thank you for your support. We are also greatful to the local news media and the surrounding communities who have reached out in support of this endeavor. We are seeking your support in helping us accomplish this goal. Please donate to this worthy cause and join us in being a part of something truly special.
