Patrick Henry Jordan was my great-grandfather. I remember the stories of how very hard life was for my grandmother Catherine, her siblings and her Mother after his murder. I am so very proud to be the great-granddaughter of a hero and I thank him for giving his life to protect and serve others. Eternal rest grant unto him oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May God bless all our fallen heroes and protect those who are now serving.
