A corrections officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Puerto Rico Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Thoughts and support for all the officers involved. Our country is a little less safe without you. Vaya co Dios Hermano!

Depart, dear Brother-in-Blue, out of this world into the arms of the Father who created you, into the arms of the Son who redeemed you, and into the arms of the Spirit who made you whole.
