Yesterday I saw your memorial plaque on Washington St in Roslindale. Killed Nov 25,1934 and thought how your family must have felt with Thanksgiving coming up. How you must have struggled in 1934 to provide for your family. My reflection is that I know that you must be in heaven because God needed you and you gave your all in the line of duty.

Just a fellow Boston citizen who cares
