Mike, we served together at the very start of our careers, at Alpha Omega Security Services. We had such a great time working together and never doubted our futures would be in law enforcement.. and we both made it. Had lost touch with you until I heard of your accident—and I was working for the NN Airport Police at that time.
You were a great guy, great cop and you absolutely loved the job. You are never forgotten.
