Very heart broken and sad to say goodby to a friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Never be another one like him. Every time him and I met, our conversation would always turn to teaching the young officers how to stay alive on the street. Very, very caring brother. Rest my friend, it is well deserved.
