Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. I was recently reminded of your passing when I found a message I had received from your grandmother about the tragic news. I have also learned that you are not the only family member who is memorialized on these pages. Our cousin through common ancestry Patrolman Robert Flenner of the Waynesboro, Pennsylvania Police Department lost his life in the line of duty in 1908. Although I did not personally know either of you, these pages have help connect me with you
