WOW Tony, I cant believe it has been 23 years since you left us. I still think about you bro , think about your kids, praying they are doing great. I think about your wife, and what a horrific blow she took from life the day you died. I hope she is well. I hope she was able to move on with her life from this. She was so young. We were all so young back then. Most of us have retired now. There is no more Brooklyn South Task Force. The buildings still there, just some other cops under a new command. Your plaque is still on the wall there, as far as I know. I hope the cops who work there now will ask questions, or try to find out who you are, how you died. I hope someone doesn't say "OH, he was killed in a RMP accident". It was so much more than that. You guys were going to a 85,78pct anti crime in foot pursuit after robbery suspect. You guys answered the call, as we all would have. Just as the 78 pct.car that you collided with was answering the call.Bro,you are the first HERO I have ever known in real life. Thanks for being a cool guy.Thanks for the jokes. Thanks for being a good guy.WOW,23 years.A whole lifetime has passed since you left.I will always think about you from time to time. Until the day I die. And we will hang out again, play darts,and crack jokes.well Bro,until then,still thinking about ya.
