I thank all of you, for never forgetting my dad... I was only 9, when he was murdered, but I still remember, the block parties, on Kalisher street, and him building the flatbottom boat, in the garage, which I still have today,,, It's called, Locrotch... The name my dad's buddies gave him. And daddy would be happy to report, it's bad ass...
So, I thank all of you, who have never forgotten him... Blue lives matter!!!
