I was working the night it happened. I heard it all over the radio. Our unit was dispatched to the city airport to secure the other aircraft that was involved in the collision. I was sick the rest of the night and couldn't sleep or eat much for days. I only met you once when you took me for a ride over the city a few weeks before. I think of you both often and I will never forget that night. May both of you RIP
