For my permanent home, I was assigned to District 2, G squad; the same squad you were on. There is not a day that goes by where I'm patrolling that I don't think about you and what you meant to the district. My only wish is that I had made it to the squad before you left because I believe I could've learned much from you. Our family had the pleasure of knowing you through Jensen and you gave my father the opportunity to learn how much fun policing could be. Two years have passed now and at that time, I was merely applying and interviewing for the police department. I had no idea I'd end up on the squad you were on. We're holding it down in Greensboro as best we can, keep watching over us.
