Miguel was my academy classmate, 24 October 1969. I was the class sergeant/leader. We bonded immediately and stayed in touch during the brief time before his tragic end. I recall the scenario, Wesson's Hamburger, Empire Blvd. Mike reacted to one but there were two. Still miss my friend and I let Tony know how much his younger brother meant to me. 50 years later, God bless my friend.
