Rest in peace Detective Sergeant Bauer. I have driven several times by the street sign bearing your humbled and heroic name on NW 7th Avenue and NW 135th Street. I remember your Inspector's Funeral at Fulford Methodist Church in North Miami Beach, Florida with the helicopters hovering overhead. My dad may he rest in peace was a longtime New York City police officer serving thirty-eight years with the 102nd precinct in Richmond Hill in Kew Gardens, a part of the borough of Queens.
