Hey Scott,
On this Memorial Day 2020, my reflection goes to you, and the honor I had of being your friend. Over the years working together at Pompano Beach Police, you an officer with Baron your trusty sidekick K-9 and myself a dispatcher, we struck up a friendship that I will always hold dear in my heart. You are a true hero, that will forever be missed and loved.
Rest in Peace
