Yesterday I went to PPD for the first time in many years. I saw your picture on the wall, and honestly it felt very heartbreaking. You were so young, and it really made me feel so sad how you were taken so early in life and your career. I reflected for a moment on how good of a Person you were, and thought about how honorable you were as an Officer, Person, and family man. You were always professional and treated everyone like family. Years later, You are now the kind of person I look up to in life. It was just on my mind, how much I wish that I could now shake your hand and tell you that Sir. GOD bless you, and thank you for your Service.
