Another year has passed. No doubt, for those who knew and loved you, it's still an open wound, though the hurt may be a little less painful, it's still there, a dull ache that may never go away.

God Bless you all for these many years of sadness and God Bless Detective Creamer for his efforts on behalf of the citizens of Boston.
