I can hardly believe 25 years has past. You were more than a cousin to me, you were more like a brother. When we were growing up your house was just two houses north of mine, there were four us that grew up together. You were so happy when you got the job at the jail and it breaks my heart that something that you loved to do ended so soon and so tragically. Losing you has been one of the biggest heartaches of our family. I often wonder who you'd be today, would you be married? Would you have kids? Would you still be working in law enforcement? I wanted to let you know that we have not forgotten you and the pain of losing you still exists. RIP Mister Green Jeans
