Officer Roche we thank you for service to our city. You will always be remembered. It is the men and women of the Boston Police Department that make our city great and safe for all. This past Sunday morning I landed at Logan with my family on a flight from Philadelphia international airport and I looked out the window of the A319-O we were traveling on when we had just touched down at Logan International East Boston. I said to myself, God I love this city. This is a special city. Our home. We thank you for your service and you will always be honored. Always praying for the protection and safety of the men and women of the Boston Police Department. - The Harrington Family of Southie
