It's now early on Sunday morning, May 24, 2015 but just as good as the 23d. I still live in Snellville and remember saying "Hi" in passing in the neighborhood or rest of the city. When you went to Gwinnett PD we didn't cross as often. I went through Snellville CPA this past fall and through Gwinnett CPA this spring filling in some pages missing from my Army Military Police Officer Basic and Advanced courses through the Reserve. All the old heads remember you like yesterday and make sure the new ones do too. I have always said the greatest monument to a man's life are the memories left behind. Yours is a great one.
