You were killed on 6/15/79. I was approached by one of the Nuns of the school and ask to do a Funeral since i was an Altar Boy Never realizing at the Time it was for a Hero who gave his life trying to make the Street of the Bronx Better. I am 51, and for some reason this funeral popped into my mind today. Thank you for your Service Police Officer
