  1. All I know about him is that whenever I saw him he was always smiling. That to me made me like him. I wish him the very best but more importantly to never stop smiling.

  2. You spent your adult life committed to helping the public and we so appreciate all your efforts. May you continue to spend your days in worthwhile things. I hope Lauren is doing fine – we all joined in wishing her well during her hospital stay. Good Luck!

  3. Congratulations Office Vogel! One of the best on the force. I knew him from the days when I worked nights at Pine Cone Liquors. I always felt safe when Petey was on patrol.
