I never met you but I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was working with Atlanta Police Department and was assigned to the precinct at the hospital where you were transported. I met several of your family members that day. I remember seeing the ambulance that you were in, leaving the hospital, while being escorted by APD's motorcycle unit. I couldn't help but tear up as the ambulance drove past.
