Just dropped off some property at South Precinct and as always I take a moment to look at your memorial picture framed on the wall of the Roll Call room. I'm glad someone who visited the Wall in DC took the time to etch your name on paper and allow the rest of us to see it.

I think of you often brother. It's getting crazy down here with police work. Watch over all of us.

God Speed.
