It's hard to believe it's been four months since your crash. Hard to believe your gone.

Wasn't all that long ago it seems when you last came over roadside and shot the breeze with me, reminiscing over the good times in McDonald County, when it seemed like a simpler time in a different place, and the new and interesting in Barry County.

I always felt proud, when you came over, that the 17 year old tag along became a law enforcement officer in his own right, and to work along side his mentors, just was incredible for me.

Hope your doing well in paradise Sarge, your truly missed.
