Officer Grill, my wife and I have never forgotten the evening that you and your Partner Tom Herron escorted us to Children's Hospital when our son Matthew had a severe arterial bleed from an accident on his bicycle.
Who would have ever thought that many years later Matt and your own son Jim would become partners and good friends on that same Pittsburgh Police Force that you had served so nobly!
Thank You again Mr Grill, we will never forget you!
