Robb,I remember when you and I graduated from Lombard High School and you went to Carver and I went to Mervo, never realizing that we would see each other again at the Baltimore City Police Academy, keeping each other grounded until graduation day. Who knew that we would make our1st arrest together outside your house off Belair Rd. moments after your graduation party. We were so proud of our accomplishments. Me, you and kevin, partners always. Other than when you're spending time with your wife and baby girl, I don't remember you being more happy. Your daughter was your world. I think of you often while looking at our class pictures and missing the bond we once shared. Your Brother, Your Friend.
