Patrolman Bell, yesterday, we said goodbye to a retired Sergeant from Plymouth who was killed in a horrific motorcycle crash in New Hampshire. Michael Ferazzi was also a Marine and I am privileged to work with his son Matt, another fine man and dedicated cop.

Today marks the 73rd anniversary of your passing. I cannot help but feel, strongly, that you were one of the first to greet Mike when he entered Heaven. You no doubt brought him into the clubs that Marines and cops only can belong to. It's Heaven, but you're all still who you are, right?

Brother, God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace.
