Michael,
I am teaching the trainees of session 76 their introduction to officer survival today, as you know I start that class off by going over each fallen Nashville Officer. I absolutally hate, and it makes me sick to have to add your name into the lecture brother.
RIP and as you always said "Motivation Check"
