Book Details

Everything I know, I learned from a Toledo Cop.

This book is a very light hearted read about life lessons learned from a father's quotes, and examples. It is my hope that you get out of this book some understanding of my memories, laugh a little bit, and realize that it is always important to understand the gravity of moments when they happen. There are no guarantees in life, enjoy life while it is happening.
