Chris Taylor you were a dear friend! I remember when you were dispatching and I worked the road, you would always say, "be careful". You were young and passionate to serve when you moved to road patrol! I clearly remember the night that you lost your life to a career you loved. The phone ringing early morning, hearing them say you had been shot. I remember your service and the song, "You Never Walk Alone". It's been many years now. You are still missed and will not be forgotten. RIP dear friend!
