First of all. he was a fantastic grandpa and so when I was learning to say words as a toodler i couldn,t say grandpa or anything like that so I could just say pop pop so he said "that,s what she can call me then" and ever since then I,ve just called him pop pop. I didn,t know my other grandpa so he was the one that I really really looked up to and all that, and I,d get so excited when I would get e-mails from him. I,ll see you one day again, Pop Pop. and we all will though really..I love and miss you so very much.

Yesterday I was driving to my office in Nashville, TN and for some unknown reason I thought about my old friend and former partner (Callaway County Sheriff’s Dept) Oscar. Sadly, with my crazy busy life as a CEO, I hadn’t thought about him in a long time. Tonight, I decided to Google him to see if I could find contact information and was shocked to see that he had died yesterday....just as I was thinking of him. So unbelievable.
We had some great times. As his younger sidekick, he was always very patient with me. He was a good cop...fair and even handed....and I learned a lot from him. I hope he is at peace. Kevin and Wayne, my sincere condolences.
