Tommy,
It's hard to believe 28 years have gone by, I remember a cookout at Timmy's house in Holbrook the summer before, I remember that night like it was yesterday I swapped the night off or would've been working in A1 or A7. You're not forgotten by the BPD or DH&H. You'll always be a hero. You'd be proud of your son.
RIP
