AB as we called you in the Department of Corrections lol. Abrams my brother I must say your death was a real loss to both agencies because you really was about servicing NYC. I was suppose to enter the Police Academy with you but I was so proud of the step you took to move on. I miss you and think about you and your daughter often. God bless your sacrifice. S.I.P
