Reflections on a valued friendship:
There is a point where feelings go beyond words. [Former River Forest police chief Nick Coscino dies, Web extra, June 26]
I take comfort in the comradeship that Nick Coscino and I shared over the 20 years we worked together in law enforcement. It was an honor to be Nick’s friend and partner. His wise counsel was something I could count on for important decision-making over the many years we worked together on the River Forest Police Department.
I have lost a true friend, and my life is more enriched by having known and been a friend of Nick Coscino.
