Hard to believe it’s been over 2 years already. I worked with him when he was a detention officer, and he always had that contagious smile. Always a great pleasure having worked with him, and I felt really proud and happy for him when he finally got his sergeant stripes. It hit me hard when I heard about what happened to him, and he’s still sorely missed. It was times like this that I try to remind myself to make each day count for tomorrow is never promised.
