Ryan, sometimes it seems like you've been gone forever. Other times, it seems like just yesterday that you were here and we were sitting at some T/A writing reports and laughing about some crazy person we just had to deal with. We had a lot of fun and I miss you a lot. How is it possible that it's been 31 years? I sure wish you were here and I could give you a hard time about being an old man. You'd probably still have that old red car! Rest easy, brother. You're missed by a lot of people.

Jane Williams, retired Sgt.
