Officer Edmond Schrempf, you will never be forgotten for the service you have given to the PEOPLE of the City of New York.
My father who's 85 YOA, and I were talking about that sad day. My father felt the sadness of this senseless death, and for many years when my dad drove by the scene of the actual accident he would say a prayer.
My Officer Edmond Schrempf forever rest in peace.
