I went to grammar school with officer Anthony Dwyer. I moved away from the neighborhood. Lost contact. One day while waiting for tickets to go see Aerosmith Anthony was on the line and even though I didn't see him in a few years because I moved away from the neighborhood he came over and talked to me and we were laughing and having a great time. He was a great guy he had a good soul. And just a wonderful person to be around nobody has ever forgotten office Dwyer
