Rest in Peace My Brother.
We lost you so many years ago, but if we keep you in our hearts, you will never be forgotten.
I never got a chance to work with you, as you were taken from us so long ago.
But, you can rest knowing we are still keeping Desoto safe.
Rest in Peace my Brother.
We will walk the beat here, as we know you are walking the Golden Streets.
Rest In Peace My Brother.
We will never forget you.
