I was at BSTF on Flatbush ave when the 10-13 came over citywide. I only met you twice on patriot lieutenant. One of the worst nights of my career. Escorted your ambulance to KCH. Off duty cops from your previous commands began to flood into the hospital to check on were loved by your cops LT. Wish I knew you better. Good bless your family .
