    Officer Cromwell was a man I respected. He pulled me over one time for going 30 in a 25 mile per hour zone next to a school. He did to remind me of that fact. I had apologized for doing so as I was not yet use to driving my dad's car that rode very smoothly not being fully aware of the speed. I was dealing with other things in regards to my dad at that time and I totally appreciated Mr. Cromwell not giving me a ticket at that point. He was not aware of any of it. To think of it now it is funny but also not funny that it occurred almost in the same spot as the recent tragedy . Wow.

    A man of integrity.

    I have talked to retired officers in the past about the new crop of law enforcement. They admit that experience can not be replaced with none other than experience. He was certainly one who had the peace officer aura about him that once he was gone was hard to replace. Lodi lost a good one.

    I miss Rick. We were friends way back to the late 70's. We ran the sound equipment at Century Assembly, shared an apartment when we attended DeVry University in Phoenix, AZ. I was the best man at his wedding. I have many great memories of Rick.
    15 years since his passing. It doesn't seem possible.
