Lieutenant Haddock, it's obvious from reading these reflections that you were respected, admired and loved very much. You still serve---as an example of faithful duty, as a model for professionalism and as an inspiration for others.

My thoughts are with the loved ones and friends of someone who was obviously a great man.
