I wanted to take a moment to reflect and to say thank you. Thank you for the 18 years of law enforcement service and brotherhood in a profession where there is an unspoken bond between peace officers both for those partnering together and those who come after. I am currently an LASD recruit and was compelled to show appreciation for your service, personal character, specially since family was the most important thing in your life, law enforcement being the second. Your life both personally and professionally has put into perspective the daily challenges we as recruits and future law enforcement officers will face. I learned that you were an avid runner and scuba diver. You held the title of a comedian. You were known to be the life of the party and a person that everyone gravitated towards. Thank you to you and your family for sharing a little peice of you with us.
