You were are a great midnight shift partner. I still remember the last night we worked together and laughing about dispatch calling out multiple Sasquatch sightings in Stafford county that night. I know you have been gone a long time, but for me the memories seem so fresh. I stopped in front of your name at the memorial in DC last night. I regret I was not with you that foggy morning. I wish I knew that 24 hours before you fell would be the last time we would see each other, maybe I would have said something more profound to you. I will never forget your beaming smile which always cut through the dark nights we worked together. Thank you. I miss you.
