We wore the same uniform for the same agency and crossed paths a few times at work or in annual training; that doesn't sound like much, but this is to assure you and your family it was "enough." Although our shared moments were few and brief, I saw the same thing every time I was near you- a young, eager, intelligent, well-respected guy. As others have noted, I remember you as one who always smiled. You wanted to learn all you could, and you represented yourself, your family, and the profession well. Thank you for your example; those who knew you were enriched and those who didn't know you missed out. Peace and blessings to your family today and always.
