Looks like he was caught about 1000' away from my place on the north side of Wyndham circle.

His actions demonstrated that he was a hero.
That he was your friend is a testament to your character.
We should all aspire to live up to his example.

Raise a beer for your friend, who did the right thing when it really counted. Count yourself lucky for having known him.

Vale.

I have no words other than to say that I am sorry the loss of your friend.

I would like to reiterate what others have said about him being a hero but somehow, that does not seem high enough praise.
