24 years ago last Sunday, you and Ernie De Cross lost your lives trying to stop some punk kid who took a car without permission. I have no idea where that kid is now, but I pray he woke up to the realities of his actions and worked towards not screwing up any further in life. You were a great cop, a terrific guy and always made those of us in the Auxiliary Police feel respected. You are missed.
