Although we never met, I started at CHAPD 3 years after you were taken from us, I always heard good things about you. A Police Officers career is typically 29 years and a day, you've been gone that long now. Most of us that either worked with you or knew of you are now retired or retiring. It's good to see that you have not been forgotten by your friends, and coworkers. Your family never forgot. Rest in Peace.
