It's been 27 year today since a great friend and police officer was taken away. I think of you often and remember the time we spent in the academy together. We spoke the morning of September 21st during shift change at Western District, I was on midnight shift and you were on day shift. It's amazing how fast things can go terribly wrong on any given call. Sadly you paid the ultimate sacrifice that day. You're missed by so many people....
