    Last night, around 7:00 p.m., I learned that my co worker passed away from injuries sustained in a car accident ten days ago. He hung in there for a long time, but just couldn't fight through it. If you're so inclined, would you say a prayer for his family?

    I'm really sorry to hear that.
    Hope you'll be alright, were you close with him?

    No..I didn't even know the kid. But in my profession, you're close to all co-workers. It truly is a family. I've gotten to know his family in the past ten days, as well as co-workers that were friends with and close to him. It has an effect on everyone. This is the 3rd time in 18 months that I'll put the black band over my badge.

    I really appreciate all of the kind words. Unfortunately, in this job, it's not a matter of "if" it will happen again, but "when" it will happen again.

    Thanks to everyone!!

    He was 21. The viewing is tonight, then the funeral tomorrow at 10. Then the long Cop car procession to the buriel site.
