Know that, although on this site it seems to be mostly strangers, your friends remember you, as well. I was just telling a new EMT about you and wanted to stop and let these fine people know that the impression you made will not soon fade. Last few times I went by, your helmet was still displayed on Sawmill Rd, and may it stay for years to come. I'll be thinking of the little stories for the rest of the day, you gave us many laughs and so much help.

A long time family friend
