Hi Sonny,

It's been almost 28 years yet I still remember speaking with you for a brief moment after getting off morning watch. As usual you encouraged me and I made a joke about the Dodge Diplomat Patrol Vehicle and the bubble light. You laughed and went into HQ and I went home. I heard about the incident on the news after waking from a day of sleep. It hurt then and it still hurts now. May you rest peace and know you are not forgotten my friend.
