I know you as my great great grandfather. While I cannot carry on our family legacy as a law enforcement officer I will carry it on in the form of public service as a firefighter. Your legacy and sacrifice will always be remembered. You are a hero to the city of Chicago as well as our family. Gone but never forgotten!
