Toby, I was thinking about you today I was at work driving around. I was thinking about all the times you locked yourself out of your patrol car. Man I must have opened that drivers door 20 times lol. Toby its funnie that I think about things like that. Every time I go to the range I always think back to us shooting. You would have had a ball shooting my M4. Your still and always will be my best friend. I miss you Toby and your friendship I hope to see you again someday.
