Jimmy, you are gone way too soon. Prayers for your soul and your family. You took care of so many law enforcement officers over the years with your professional and and quick response as a dispatcher (including me) at times that posed a real danger to those involved. You honorably served your country as a combat veteran and for that I thank you for your service. Rest well my friend and I am comforted to know that we'll meet again one day in Heaven to share stories.
