Brother you we’re gonna too soon from us I enjoyed the times we had getting bad guys off the street. You loved being a State Trooper more than anything it was for sure your destiny and your passion. I can still remember every time you seen me you would always ask if I was ready to go to patrol school lol I wish I would have. The last time I seen you you told me to call you that you had something to talk to me about guess i will never know till I see you again. Mississippi Highway Patrol, The Citizens of Madison County, your family and everyone that has ever known you was lucky to know you. Rest easy brother we’ll hold the line from here. See you soon bro
