Junior, your attitude and your personality are missed so much around here. I was proud to say you were my partner, I loved working with you. I miss hearing you say "Buford T. Justice!" every time I'd walk in the door. A great deal of joy is gone from here because you're not here to provide it. It's really hard coming in to work knowing that my partner won't be here.

When Chief called me that night, I could tell he had something bad to tell me. I really thought he was about to tell me I had been fired, I wish that's what he was calling to tell me because I can find another job, but we'll never find another Lopez.

I love you and miss you my brother....until we meet again
