Although its been 27 years, I will never forget you my friend. Yesterday we lost a Trooper and I admit I had a little PTSD. He too was a good officer like you were, but also a caring individual just as you were. Meet up with him at heavens gate, and you two can watch over those that are still here doing what you both loved, to Protect and Serve . RIP
