HOT ROD, I remember the day we met, you got me in trouble and I spent time at internal affairs behind that. That was the start of a friendship that continued to this day. I followed you to traffic enforcement where it was a constant competition on who could ride that bike the best, you always beat me, lol. We spent years on the DPD Honor Guard together and from there you became a big brother to me. Some people you think will never leave you and you were that person, you were bigger than life. Bro I miss you.
