I am getting some very angry emails and post comments regarding the suspects in this case. I will not tarnish Henry's name by posting these items, as this tribute is for Henry Canales, and not the coward that shot him. Please write comments to the family who will miss Henry. I am sure they would appreciate the support.

Police officers are challenged daily in the performance of their duties; they face each challenge freely and unselfishly while answering the call to duty. Senior Police Officer Henry Canales faced those challenges and answered that call to duty for over 16 years with the Houston Police Department. It takes a very special person to run towards danger while others run away, or to simply stand tall, do the right thing day after day, and make a difference in the community that you serve. I have always been fond of the inscription simply stated on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC: “IN VALOR THERE IS HOPE.” Thanks for providing hope for so many during your tenure with the City of Houston – you made a difference. Nemo Me Impune Lacessit (no one attacks me with impunity). God bless you, your family, and all of your brothers and sisters in law enforcement.
