We went to the same Police Academy Class 167. We worked together in the same precinct in "El Condado" with the "Tourist Zone Police" Unit. He was a brother to me and at the time of the accident I was with the Hartford Police Dept. in Connecticut. He was a true friend and a brother. He has been always missed but never forgotten. I love you my brother, RIP.
