Another year has come and gone and I’ve long since hung up the duty belt and put away the boots yet the pain is still there. Every time we lose another my thoughts go to you, what you were and what you could have been. Time doesn’t heal the wounds it just leaves a nasty scar that never goes away. RIP BROTHER.
