Hey buddy I'm sorry if I'm a little bit late in leaving this reflection but believe me when I say this I have never forgotten you in all of the 18 years since you left this world. You were a good friend and an excellent deputy that was taken away from us way too early in life. 1992 was a lousy year for our department I lost 2 good friends in the line of duty as I said before you both are on my mind and will forever be in my heart. RIP my brother.
