It's ben 29 years since you were taken along with Danny. I just visited his page and want to send you a message as well.
I rode with you when I escaped from the Airport Detail. Randy Brown paired us up for a while to :break me in, again". You know us old guys had a tendency to forget stuff..
I vividly remember the night we were riding the wagon when we got a call to back up Mikey Jones at 23rd Ave and Campbell. A

Viet Nam vet was having flashbacks and was shooting the apartment complex up. We were able to take him into custody without injury to anyone. Leo Hynes arrived as the three-striper and we went into service telling Mike to call us when he needed transport. We drove to 23rd Ave and Indian School when Mike put out a 906. The 918 had gotten into the kitchen after Leo took off his cuffs, grabbed a knife and was threatening Leo. Mike was about to shoot him when we arrived and took him back into custody without further incident. That time we took the 918 with us...
I also remember other incidents that we depended upon each other and no one was disappointed. I loved it when you came to Sq Pk working Dets. There were lots of times made better with you and Danny there.
Rest in Peace my friend. You will not be forgotten...
