19 years ago today Steve. It changed us and our lives forever. You were a helluva cop, friend and human being. The pain never really goes away. We will never forget your sacrifice. I hope your continuing to rest in eternal peace, especially with some of the new OCSD personnel who have joined you up in heaven over the last couple of years. Rest easy my friend.
