You were my Field Training Officer, moreover, a gentleman who was patient, intelligent, and focused. Some have tried to imitate you, but you remain unique. It saddens me still that you left us so soon having given so much with the guarantee of even greater deeds to come. You are in a better place now. Ike, you earned it having given your all to this life. You strove to achieve perfection. Your life is remembered by more than your name engraved on a wall and a freeway that also bears your name. Rather, it was a vast shadow that you bore. I am forever grateful was cast my way.

San Francisco Police Department, Ike's one-time trainee
