Eight members of the Puerto Rico Police Department were shot and killed during a political insurrection in which the Nationalist Party was attempting to overthrow the United States' presence.

The day before the planned attack a large number of arrests were made by the Puerto Rico Police and FBI. However, the attack still went on and led to the deaths of dozens of individuals.

Padre de mi corazón, mi amado "Papito". Quisiera tenerte frente a mí y poderte decir, cuanto tus cuatro hijos the recordamos en cada conversación. Yo no puedo recordarte pues solo tenía tres años pero te doy las gracias porque supistes escojer la mujer más maravillosa del mundo, para madre de tus hijos. Ella se encargo de cuidar de tus hijitos como tu lo hacias. Nos enseño a amarte y a honrarte como Padre. Aún nos llamamos como tú nos decias a cada uno, "Mi Negrita" Yiyi; "Mi Canito" Jorge; "Mi Batatita" Taty; y "Mi Gatita" Deddie.

Gracias por todo el amor que nos distes. Te recordaré y amaré siempre.

Tu bebé, tu Gatita,

Deddie
