You and my uncle were partners soon after he graduated from the academy back in the 70s. You guys were always hanging out together, and occasionally, you guys even let a young brother tag along. The two of you both had a joy for life and lived it to it's fullest. As I reflect on his recent passing, I also reflect on those whom he knew and cared about. Rest In Peace Officer Winfred Hunter, may God continue to bless and keep your family.
