Although it has been a long time, I just learned of Asa's passing and I am incredibly sad about the loss of a really great guy. Although we only spoke occasionally and only were able to meet up when I was in New Orleans, I cannot tell you how sad it is to know that he is gone. I'll miss him greatly - he was a friend who I will always remember with great fondness.

24 years ago I was a rokie NOPD rookie reserve officer, Asa took me under his wing and helped me a lot in my formative years. Whenever we were together we always had a good time and a good laugh. He truly lived life and will always be remembered.
