I miss ed. He worked my patrol unit the day he died. I was on leave. As a co worker he was one of the guys...always had your back had a dry sense of humor and was a good police officer. His death effected all of us in the squad. I was one of his pall bearers and I still wear the st. Michael medal his wife Judy gave to all of us. May he rest in peace and NEVER be forgotten.
