Tribute to a Friend

Yesterday we held a memorial service for my friend of 30 years. The church couldn't hold the crowd, but that was no surprise. A larger than life character, everybody knew him. Jep was long time police officer. Well known as a narc in the 70's and 80's he was feared by local drug dealers. After his time in drug enforcement he spent 10 years working crimes against children. He taught me how to bust drug dealers, and he taught me about having a friend who was always there. No matter what, period. A 70's era Narc, he never lost the look. When he died at 67 Jep still had the swagger, the gold chain, sunglasses on the head, and full swept back hair. He drove a mustang convertable and looked like he belonged in it. Forever young, forever cool. He never lost the swagger, he never will. Thanks for reading this

    very cool.

    i honestly do not think i could handle working crimes against children. those guys live with stuff that would probably make most of us fold like a lawn chair

    sorry for the loss of your friend, but it sounds like the memorial was a bit of a celebration, too.
