I had the privilege of working with this great guy at the Jennings Police Department. Winston would help anyone he could. He is greatly missed by all. Just before this unfortunate incident, he was in the process of trying to help my Mom to have a chance to see me. I'm glad I got a chance to know you, and thank you for all you have helped me with.
