Uncle Pap,

You popped into my mind and I decided to google your name. It was so wonderful to come upon this site and see that others also honor and appreciate you. On behalf of Grandma Cora's grandchildren, your nieces and nephews, I pray for healing in honor of your memory. Healing, understanding, and compassion between the citizens and the officers that serve. Your family is proud of your service to the great city of Chicago and to our nation. Rest in Peace dear Uncle. Love, Mickey
