Sir, I remember you fondly. Your knowledge and sense of humor is what is needed in that environment. I still tell the story about how you sent me into the kitchen and had my first interaction with Jeanette (I got yelled at....a lot). I remember how hard you were laughing and the smile on your face. You patted me on the back told me welcome aboard. I still tell this story even in my civilian life. Your lessons have helped to carry me through my life. Gone but not forgotten. Watch the 6 of those that remain at Pima county. Love and miss you.
