Tim we were talking at 14th Avenue and E18 about KY and where we were from. I got a call and I have always wished I would have talked you into being my cover. You said you were going to go hunt stolen cars. While on the call we heard it come over the radio from the off duty SF Officer that you had been hit. You have always been missed since you had to leave us.
