Hey dan. Dont know me but i remember you. And went to school with you at east jh. Im sorry buddy, wouldn't wish this on anyone. Always felt for you and your family. I was friends with stephen peraino. Johny defalco and all these guys on the east side of brockton. Went to ashfield and graduate 85 at bhs. Always felt bad for you about your dad. Just ran across this and well, your dad was an awsome cop taking care of us brocktonians. You're a good guy, wish i could have hung out and knew you better. You always seem like a good guy. Take care buddy and just know, someone out there appreciated what your dad did for us.

Buddy from bhs and ejh
