It's hard to believe, but next week will be 40 years since your death. I've tried to honor your life by helping the widows and families of retired SDPS members with the "details" of former PSOs passing away. I've never known another friendship like ours, nor will I. It was an honor to serve with you, I think of you often, and wonder why.
