Old Friend !

Well, January brings up a sad note, it was in 2010 that we made a trip to visit my long time Police Partner Mark Fuhrken, Mark was in Baylor Hospital in Dallas, Pancreatic Cancer was taking it's toll on him. We flew out of Syracuse to Dallas on an emergency Mercy Flight and we arrived in Dallas, rushed to Hospital but Mark Fuhrken passed away just before we got to his room, just a matter of minutes really, I guess the Good Lord wanted it that way.  He is still sadly Missed.
. Rest in Peace Old Friend , Your Watch stands relieved.

. My other closest friend, Mike Hart from Georgia passed away last year, he was a "one of a kind" type, always a phone call away, when I was sick once he drove up from Georgia to New York to visit me. Hard to believe they are gone,  I still have the "Memories", they will always be with me.

I am not sure where this came from but I copied it to share...............

We were friends to each other; we still are. Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way, which you always used. Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
.Let my name be ever the household word that it always was!!

Why should I be out of your mind because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well. Nothing is hurt. Nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we all meet again!"
