My Partner Dax - Its been 25 years since that day but I remember it all like it just happened. I sent you in to that blighted place..why did I send you back? There were many others after you but none could measure up, I suppose that is my fault. I often pass by locations we worked and remember the times. I will never forget. You were a warrior and it was my honor to work you. Afterwards, I was told God has a plan for us ...but we would not do heavens work well. God will certainly send us out to patrol again, searching for demons on the mean streets of Hell.
