Was down at the wall at 6am in June thinking of you John. I had to find your name as well as another brother from Missouri State Hwy Patrol that I worked with in a town called Sikeston. Like you and I he was another hard charger that was just as confused as us on which job was more fun, firefighting of police work. Well DC lifted the age cut of for DCFD so I took the test. Just before I thought it was only fitting to find you and Jay on the wall. Did have good times around you from the academy to all the overtime details. You were just as ate up for the job as I. Will never forget you brother!
