Mrs. Gibson, I'm Aldo Morris I grew up with Brian, we both attended Winston Elementary School. I didn't serve with Brian on MPD, at the time of his death I was USCP Police Officer. When I visit the old neighborhood I often think of us both talking and joking as we walked home from school and catching craw fish in the woods after school. I actually saw Brian not to long before his death and couldn't believe he had joined the police department, but he said he loved it. Brain was always cool while we were kids. I wish you and his family continued peace as you go on in life without him.
