Miss you alot Joe. We were both Agents at Brackettville, TX USBP Station. I remember the tough times during the shift. You didn't want to quit until you were exhausted, which you were at the end of 10 hours. We carpooled alot, had great family cookouts. I transferred to another state and heard of your death. RIP. You were a great friend.
