Today, 98 years ago, you were taken from us, your family. Last Monday, I was finally able to visit your grave site for the first time ever Holy Cross Cemetery in Lackawana, NY, as well as my Grandmother, your wife, Emily and your youngest son, Cornelius, my Uncle Neil.
It was emotional, and yet comforting that I was able to visit all of your resting places. I wish I could have transported myself back in time to see when you and my grandmother were married and your children were born, in happier days.
I think of you often, wish I could have known you, I love you and am so proud of you and your service.
Thank you to all officers, past and present for their service and putting their lives on the line every day they go to work. God Bless you all.
