Gerry: So many years have gone by now. I have never forgotten you. You were part of my life, my family and my heart. You were an awesome man. The first man to make my mom happy in every facet of life. You, Nero and everything that you stood for will forever be in my memories. When mom passed I gained comfort in knowing that you two are together again. Please know that the day you received a dog call and raced out the door only to back into to the side of my car, I never blamed you. I know that you felt guilty but it was just a car and you were headed out to catch the bad guy. Reserve Officer or not, I know how much time you dedicated to the department and training time to the dog program. You were my step-dad, my friend and a man who treasured his life and job. God Bless you DAD.
