Toby, its been a long time and over three years since I posted anything. Well I have moved on to another agency and really like it here. The pay is great and we are well taken care of. The Sheriff is great you would have liked him. Man I miss you buddy I would love to just wake up and that night never happen. Its always in my mind and will be with me til I pass someday.
