Ira, I went to see you today. I cant believe its been 25 years since you left us. I talked with your father and your aunt while attending the service to honor your memory and sacrifice. I think about you alot. I reflect to all the good times we had while in training, and how excited we were to be Baltimore Police Officers. Well I have retired now as you probably would be doing as well if you were still with us. Chris M, Nick T were also with me today. They both came a long way to be with us. I miss you bro, play some pool up there and smile, we got this. Peace Brother- Chris
