I will never forget the time Henry was brought into The ER at Beverly Hospital. Within minutes Surgery staff was called the best surgeons and nurses were there I had to stay in the ER with Dr. trejo along with some of his fellow officers. Sometime later we got the news, his wounds were mortal. Having known him and his visits to the ER left me with a sense of loss and a feeling of helplessness that I couldn't do anything. Grief set in. Seeing all MPD at his service at San Gabriel Mission, tears rolling down their faces the brotherhood was inconsolable. Mrs. Acuna my prayers have always been with you and your children. RIP old friend.
