Joe I think about you quite often. I have questioned the fact that it I was the reason you left Lee Way and worked so hard to become an Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper. You were a great friend and I loved Vickie and the kids. I remember the times you would ride with me on a cross-town shift and say how much you wanted to do this job. I will always remember you landing in my front yard and having lunch with us. We had a lot of fun together and with the kids. My favorite memory was the days that Pete learned how to say "Big Twuck" which his daddy drove. I still have the photo of us standing in front of my house that was taken the day before.
