Eric it has now been over eleven years since I have received your kidney! Never had the opportunity to thank you for giving me the second chance in life. You are truly an Angel and there has not been a day goes bye and I think of you and your family. We have had dinner's together and phone calls. All is well! I have shared our story with many of our brothers and sisters in blue. It has been very difficult at times to discuss our short journey together. Thank you for giving the second chance in life! Tell the rest of our brothers hello and take care my friend and brother in blue!
