Oye Ortiz, siempre estas en mi mente y en mi corazon. Trabajamos por muy corto tiempo. Cuando llegastes a la Unidad te abri las puertas de la amistad. Pasamos muchos momentos buenos y lindo. Nos encontramos juntos la madrugada de ese martes 29. Comimos juntos, charlamos junto toda una noche y nos preparamos para cumplir nuetra mision. Pero jamas pensamos que seria la ultima noche.

Esa disparo todavia retumba en mi cabeza. Ver a Luchi gritar tu nombre me lleno de valor y volver a saltar ese porton tan alto solo para llegar a tu lado. Pedi una ambulanci, Me sente en el piso te puse en mi falda, te mire a los ojos y te dije estoy con tigo y te abraze mientras te ivas. Nonpude esperas por una ambulacia y te cargue hasta la primera patrulla para que te llevaran a las sala de emergencias, con la esperanza de que regresaras pero sabia que te habias hido en mis brazos.

Siempre te voy a recordar mi hernamo de Sangre Azul.
Tu amigo
