Melendez wanted to go home to get his ring but was unable to do so.and before we left the briefing and were assigned he told me that he knew tonight would be his night and he said good bye normally it would be us three patrolling but i was replaced to train a new officer and berenguer an melendez was given a rookie officer which he died as well.In one way i was spared, and you know the rest but my dear friend i believe you met up with your father and you are in a better place rest in peace que descanse I will always cherish our friendship and remember all of those memories we all had .RIP
