Dear Ted: There is a special bond between cruiser crews in Detroit (especially from adjoining precincts). I was on #5 cruiser that terrible night, and we were shocked and dismayed when the accident happened. our crew went to the funeral home, to pay our respects, but please know you are not forgotten. We will always remember you. Rest in peace.

Nancy,

In 1964-1965, I was your C.K.S. (Detroit, MI.) classmate, and I remember how sad it was when your father passed away.
He's a real American hero! I hope your life has been blessed with much happiness.
