Thomas, I don’t recall ever having met you, but I was working the night of your crash. As I typically did, I was scanning the local agencies on my scanner. I heard a mic key-up and then what sounded like a car crash. I’d assumed that it was someone goofing around on SPEN, as folks did back before the triangle boys could id you. It was only later when I was sent to help establish an LZ that I realized just what it was I had heard on the scanner. I still remember your car at Seville’s. Of all the jobs I’ve been on in my 27+ years, that’s one that will never leave me. I’m sorry that I never got to know you. God Bless and keep you Brother.
