Well Willis you know I called everybody by their last name. Lol. I sure do miss you down here. I remember the times we used to work together and I always loved when you were my backup because I knew you were going to handle business. I left law enforcement after I left the Sheriff's Office and began teaching Public Safety in the high schools. I enjoy it and I get the opportunity to share stories about you to my students. I would have invited you to come out and talk with my students because you were good with kids. I was thinking of you today and wanted to honor your memory just because. You are truly missed my friend.
