I visited the police museum today with my son. I showed your badge to him and explained that you were his great, great, grandfather.

I wish that I could have known you but you died when my grandfather was just a boy. My son is close to the age that my grandfather was when you were killed. My grandfather carried on your work by becoming a CLE Policeman and later becoming a detective
