Hey Buddy well in a few days it will be four years since we lost a great guy/officer you are still missed greatly. We all think about you all the time and laugh when we speak of Red Baron or of Hess Aviation and Repair shop when you ran your car into the ditch and tried to bondo it up with your airplane quick fix kit. I could go on forever with all the good memories we have. You are missed here on earth but I know you are in a better place. God bless your family and friends as I know a lot of them are thinking of you this week.
RIP brother!
