I grew up with Freddy in our church. First Spanish Presbytian church of Brooklyn. I was in the Academy when he was being promoted to Sgt. we saw each other from time to time when I stopped by the 90 or when he worked at 84. I really miss him and I sent my blessings to his family. My dad showed me a picture when we were about 10 years old, can’t help shedding a tear
