I wished that I'd had the opportunity to have met you and introduced you to all of my cousins produced by your daughters.
The people that I meet from the Worcester Police Dept. showed me and my family huge levels of respect during the days leading to Washington DC and our Group Host Tom Dowd was available to us in Washington and next the Boston Memorial and finally the Worcester Memorial. Thank you - Chief Steven M. Sargent and Sgt Kerry Hazelhurst - Norman E. Faucher, Jr.
