Theo, you were one of a rare number of people who just "HAPPEN" to be whereever the action is. I read your record and it is truely amazing the way where ever things happened from the Ax Murderer of New Orleans, to the Robert Charles incident....there you were when needed. Rare indivuals such as yourself somehow... some way... alway's just end up where the action is. That is how your life ended, in a blaze of glory. Doing what you were meant to be doing... alway's faithful.
