Hermano to have worked besides you was truly an honor. I’ll never forget the funny conversations about our calls at work and who can forget about that smile. Honestly I will never understand why you were taking from us, pero solo dios sabe. The day I got the call from Gutierrez about what happened to you. I was in disbelief, I was angry as to why this happened especially to someone as great as you. I’ve been with your family ever since that day, and I promise to always be there for them as long as I can. We will never forget you and we’ll continue to honor your legacy. All your brothers and sisters from South Precinct miss you dearly. Forever in our hearts #3423 Officer Edgar I.Flores
