Thinking about you neighbor. I remember you always jogging by my house and one day you stopped and introduced yourself and you pointed at my patrol car in the driveway and you said "I am going to have one of those in my driveway one day". Well months later and without me knowing, I passed your house and indeed you did have a patrol car in your driveway. I stopped and said congratulations. It's been almost 19 years since we got that sad news. RIP my friend, your neighbor, Gary
