Some people you meet it just seems like you have known each other for a long time, Officer Rodriguez is one of those people. He was guarding the CVS Drug Store trailor when Kim and I first saw him.
During his break we all talked in Spanish for a while and got to know each other. He is very kind and said next time we are in New York he would like to invite us over to eat some BBQ. He and other officers are working long hours in Rockaways, NY where hurricane Sandy hit.
When I asked him if he knew if he was going to Heaven or not, he told me a friend of his had led him to the Lord several years ago.
Later in the day he was driving by in a squad car and hit the siren, then he pulled over and talked to me for a minute.
