It's been a long time my friend. I never got to thank you for coming back to Knoxville and seeing me in the hospital after crashing my police bike. When we were kids, our time as K.P.D Explorers were a blast. We've never forgot you, or your service to the citizens of Knoxville Tn. , Mt. Pleasant S.C. , and the State of South Carolina. Know this Ed , your life and service made a difference and I'm proud to say you are a friend.
