John (aka Big Red) :) was just thinking about you and googled (didn’t have that back when we were rookies) lol. Think about you often my friend. We were friends before the academy and became Deputies together after and that day you took the ultimate sacrifice 22 years ago I will never forget. You have always held a special place in my life and just wanted to say “I miss ya big red”
Keep protecting us from high above in the heavens!!!
