Hey Mike, just sitting here at work with Joe Weber again. We've both retired and are working together again. Miss ya Mike, watched the video from swat camp again and laughed. You had the best laugh I've ever heard.

Can't believe it's been so long that you've been gone now. Seems like only yesterday.

Love and miss you Brother!

Ret. Sgt. Clayton Monte
