As I sit in the same console at work as I did the night you, one of my officers, were taken from us I can't help but to think of you and the memories and impact you put on our agencies and 911 center. We miss our Turtle and his contagious smile and laugh. We are still holding it down but it dang sure ain't the same without you. Keep resting easy!
