Missing mi compadre, mi carnan, mi amigo big time right now. Maybe I should of stayed on patrol with you instead of switching to another division. Maybe if I had we would of been on a different call together that night, and you wouldn't of had the accident. Maybe if I could of convinced you to come over to my division, this would of never happened. I probably have these thoughts once every few months or so...or when your family posts another awesome pic of you online. I know GOD had a different plan for you, but I can't help but miss your warming smile and that laugh as we clowned each other between calls.

Love you to the moon bro,
