Jerry, last Thursday I attended the annual memorial service conducted by Chief Randy Johnson and the Toll Road authorities every year to honor deputies who have died in the line of duty while serving on the Toll Roads of Harris County.
You have been on my mind since that service. You are still missed here at Precinct 5 and your memory and stories of your work still abound.
