|“||Rick Pitchiner was my friend. In his last moments, he asked me to pass along a message to his daughter, but I cut him off before he could say too much. I told him he could tell Elizabeth himself, but he didn't get that chance. Your father wanted you to know how proud of you he was, and he should be. You're a beautiful, strong woman, a generous friend, and a bright light in a sea of dark. He said you were extraordinary, and you are, and so was he. Ric was a hero. He was a hero to all of you. And he was a hero to me. Goodbye, Maverick. You will be missed.||”|
