I remember the Officers that would work the late night shift and I would stop by late in the evening to have a cup of coffee with them, I patrolled and made water changes on the Delta Mendota Canal System from Santa Nella to Firebaugh. That night I didn't stop by because I had a large amount of water I was moving down the system, The next night I stop by and found out what had happen and the changes made to the Office for future visitors and the Protection of Officers, to this day I still remember stopping and sharing a cup of coffee with them, It was a Terrible Loss, You are not forgotten.
