I thought of you yesterday... Brandy & the girls' first Thanksgiving without you. These 'first's are always hard; had too many of them myself. Post and the streets still feel empty to me. One day there would be talk of some range or K9 training and for that one quick instant I think you'll be there... then I remember.

There were so many things I still wanted to talk to you about, so many things I wanted you to train me on and share what you know; now it's just a memory of times gone.

I miss you. You were the very best of the best, I said it years ago and will always say it. As a father, a Trooper, a leader, a trainer, a friend... you were it.
Now, what has been good, right, and true for years, generations, is almost as absent as you: great memories of the past, too many questions & chaos in the present, giving us a belief it will be lost in the future. You and Gabe are needed now more than ever. I miss you my friend. Thank you for everything.
