49 YEARS AGO, LLOYD AND I WERE ON ROUTINE PATROL WHEN A DRUNK DRIVER T-BONED OUR PATROL VEHICLE, ROLLING IT OVER. IN A STARK CONTRAST, LLOYD WAS KILLED INSTANTLY WHILE I SUFFERED LITTLE MORE THAN LACERATIONS FROM FLYING GLASS AND WHERE THE SEATBELT WENT THROUGH MY UNIFORM PANTS AT MY GROIN AS I ENDED UP HANGING UPSIDE DOWN FROM MY SEAT BELT. THE IRONY IS THAT IF WE HAD NOT BEEN AT THAT EXACT PLACE AT THAT EXACT TIME THE DRUNK DRIVER WOULD HAVE GONE THROUGH STORE FRONT! LLOYD WAS ONE OF THOSE RESERVE DEPUTIES WHO YOU COULD ALWAYS COUNT ON TO DO THE JOB CORRECTLY. IN A FURTHER IRONY, BEFORE GOING ON THE JOB FULL TIME, I TOO SERVED AS A RESERVE DEPUTY AND KNOW HOW DEDICATED THESE PEOPLE SERVE WITHOUT PAY. NOT A COLD RAINING DAY GOES BY THAT MY BACK DOESN'T END UP REMINDING ME OF THAT INSTANT WHERE THE WORLD LOST A GOOD MAN. TO THOSE WHO SERVE.....THANK YOU AND BE SAFE.
