Spent a lot of time fishing from Armeni and the ramp under First South bridge. When my parents divorced in the 60's my mom lived across the street from Armeni. Was a lot of years later that I went to work at KCSO. Retired from there in 2003. I was lucky. He and so many others were not. We all need to remember EVERYONE that protects us from evil.
