My Academy Partner, my Brother, my Friend...

I remember as though it was yesterday, pacing you so that we could both make the mile in the allowed amount of time at the Academy in Springfield. And I remember as you lumbered away from me, looked back, and just smiled. You are and will forever be missed Mike.
