Hey buddy,

Your smile and laugh come to my mind often, I can still hear you... It stills seems like we were just talking the other day.

Your friend and backup, always

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Hey buddy, I miss you... You enter my thoughts regularly and it always makes me smile thinking about some of your shenanigans. I miss our chats, I miss your ridiculous efforts to bust my chops, I miss your laugh, I miss that look you'd give me when words weren't necessary as we were each thinking the same thing about what needed to happen. I miss you brother.

There is really nothing unique or special about today. However, I just want to let you know there is never a day that goes by that I don't think about you and your family. The sadness felt from your loss is diminished whenever I remember our conversations and the laughter we shared. You're greatly missed.....
