Dear Friends ,

Thank you for the sincere expressions of respect. You gave me comfort when I realized my grandfather, Patrolman Leo Bajerski, has not been forgotten.

I'm 65 and won't live forever. Lol. .So it's very soothing to know the memory of my Grandpa will carry on.

God bless you. Thank you for your service and sacrifices.
