Patrolman Jaramillo, I think about you often, we have some mutual shares in our lives. Both of us born in Encino, NM, both having Jaramillo relatives, but most of all, I thank you for your service in two uniforms. Our little hometown has reared some tremendously good people, you are one of them. I will not forget you, and again thank you for your service. All gave some, Some Gave All. Descanse en Paz, Patrolman Antonio Jaramillo, from a grateful New Mexican, Marty Rivera.
