Ptl. Tufts, on this 57th anniversary of your tragic death, I wish to thank you for your service to the people of the Commonwealth and of course the City of Lynn. What became of the drunk you and had to chase, I but I hope and pray he saw what his actions brought about and strove to change his life.

Wherever your family is now, I hope and pray they keep you forever in their hearts.

God Bless and may you eternally Rest in Peace, Brother.
