Sergio Carrera was a loved and respected police officer, after attending the "EOW" ceremony today I spent the rest of the day thinking that he was taken too young and had a lot to still give in life in his profession and personally.

He is missed- although I only had brief interactions with him he impacted me in a positive way.
