Jimmy, today marks 24 years since you were taken from us. You would be proud today if you saw that the dream of getting out of the Teamsters Local 237 could soon be a reality. I have often said that if you were still with us I would have been honored to see you as he first Chief of Department. Another thing is that I and members of the HHCPBA will not give up to finally bring the Perl(s) responsible for your death and bring final justice to your family, friends, and for the HHC Police Department. Jimmy, rest in peace with our brothers Harry Cantave, and Jimmy Low. You were a great leader and an inspiration to all who served as HHC Police Officers.
