I wanted to let you know your great grandfathers memory is still alive.
I had his wrist band with me during police week 2015. I was wearing his band on a 250 mile bicycle ride from Chesapeak, Va to Washington DC on May 10-12. I belong to a group called Law Enforcement United. We raise money for ODMP and C.O.P.S (concerns for police survivors).
I used your great grandfather to give me strength to finish this ride.
Yes, his memory is still alive.
