As I write this it is the Saturday before Veteran's Day 2018. I never knew Bob but feel a closeness to him every Sunday. You see I am a 42 year veteran with the Troy Police Department and also an ordained Deacon at St. John's in Troy N.Y.. My name is the Reverend Officer Paul M. Carney. Every Sunday when I vest for services at St. John's I look at the memorial in the Sacristy dedicated to him and think of Bob. I have been serving at St. John's for ten years now and each year I always make a point to mention Bob during the Prayers for the People. Many blessings to you and your family members. Your Brother in arms.
