Deputy Sheriff Rossi,
On today, the 72nd anniversary of your murder, I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Duval County. I think it was a travesty of justice that your murderers spent so little time in prison.

This distinguished and well remembered man was my great grandfather.Although i was never able to meet him the deeds that he acomplished throughout his short lived life instilled a great respect for him in me.I believe that the punishment for his murderers was comepletely unjust, but of course this was a different time.I am honored to know that my grandfather is being respectfully remebered in a website such as this.Thank you, Ashley Rossi.
