Dear Dennis,, Im not sure why I found myself reflecting on the early years of my career today, but I did. You quickly came to mind and all i could think was what a great friend you you were to me..
Im sure you can recall those nights when I rode with you on unit 10C50N, way out on the east-end of Northeast. I admired your style of policing, our conversations, and most of all- your humor! You made me laugh so often, it was a pleasure spending 8 hrs in the patrol car with you...
Im sure I speak for many of the Ol Northeast guys, we miss you and your in our hearts. Unfortunately, years later our careers took us down different paths and we didn't see each other that often. When we did see each other we always laughed about the funny crazy calls we ran together.
When we feel selfish that your no longer with us, I just remind myself that God had bigger plans for you!
We miss you my friend!
God Bless you!!
