I remember when you reached out to me when I was a rookie (#1045). I and another deputy were being hammered by calls on the west side. You placed a call to check out an abandoned vehicle. When I arrived, there you were with a bbq grill overlooking a rusted heap at the bottom of the hill. You then offered up a burger. I will never forget your thoughtfulness and backing each other up. I heartfully regret not being on that night and I wasn't there for you. It will forever bring tears to my eyes.
I know you're in a better place. I will see you again.
