For some reason, I cannot explain, I had thoughts of you today 05/25/2018. You were my patrol partner for many tours of duty in the 108 Pct in the 1980's. We both enjoyed the job and backed each other up when it counted. You were a great cop, and I felt bad when you left the pct for Highway. However, I knew that Highway was what you wanted. I was shocked and saddened when news came out of your death doing the job you loved to do. Heaven is for hero's Kenny. Rest in Eternal Peace!
