I was thinking about Jon today. I was at the WLEA on the day that this event occurred and myself and Marty Peterson hurried back to assist in anyway possible. Whenever I think about my time on the Gillette PD, I always think of Jon and his friendship. Jon Hardy, your contribution to the City of Gillette will never be forgotten.
