I remember Officer Snow crossing us kids on Wison & Ferry! He always took time to talk to us. He mentioned that he had a daughter and a party that he had to make sure he wasn't late for! He was such a sweet man! I was around 8 or 9 at the time and still remember him that's how nice he was. I was a teenage at the time of his death! It bothered me for a long time. Now with the Angels.
