My Brother,

You paid the ultimate price for your service to the citizens of Philadelphia. Putting your life on the line every day. For strangers or those who knew you.

I assure you will never be forgotten.

Until we meet please ask God to continue to look over and protect your family and your brothers in blue.

Kenneth R. Webb
Brother in Blue
