Way too young and off duty with only his "off duty" handgun in solo foot pursuit of a suspect......... EPA was a little short on PD resources in those days. RIP Joel

Hey Joel,
It's been 27 years since we lost you. You are gone from this world but never forgotten. I often think of you and the times we spent together. Your laughter and smile always brightened my day. You are missed my friend.

27 years today. No mother could have ever wished for a better son than you, Michael. I heart hurts everyday I spend without you. You were the love of my life and the best son in the world. I love you more than ever and now you have been gone longer than you were with us.

I love you,

Mom

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
GOD Bless

Every time I drive through or around East Palo Alto, I remember you. Anyone riding with me learns about how you are such a true hero.

I also lost a friend, like you a true hero, in the World Trade Center attack on Sept 11. (Fire Marshal Ronald Bucca). Every time I speak about him or other heroes, I remember you, too.

Like Ron, you could have worked anywhere you wanted. You and Ron both didn't have to be where you were when you made the greatest sacrifice a person can make.

You -- and everyone who influenced you to become the person you were -- are owed a debt by society.

I can only hope to make it to your level to see you again for Final Inspection.
