Tom, you were a good friend and it was great to see you in the USBP class behind mine. We were able to visit and reminisce about the thing we had done together when I was a deputy sheriff and you were and El Centro PD officer. Had you graduated, you would have been the forth consecutive honor graduate of the USBP academy from Imperial County, California. You are well respected and missed.
