Dear Albert, (Father-in-law)
I never got to know you before I married your only child, J. Albert Fisher. My husband, your son, died at a very early age also.

J. Albert and I had three beautiful children, Mark Albert, Carolyn and Mary Ellen. We all truly wish you could be with us today.

We have been so fortunate to hear some wonderful stories over the years. Some say you were just a big teddy bear, so gentle and kind to all.

I am so proud of my son Mark, who has worked so hard for a long period of time to put this recognition together, with the help of the Burlington Police Department.

May you rest in peace Albert. You'll never be forgotten.

Uncle Albert:
I remember the day you passed away as your son Albert and I were best friends as well as cousins. I was a Freshman in High School on that day. I was very proud of you and Pepere who was a retired Chief of Police of Burlington. I also had the honor to serve on the Burlington Police Department from 1953 to 1956 when I moved to California and became a Police Officer on the Chino Police Department. I remember how strong you were but very gentle with your son and me. I am very proud to have been a member of your family. Rest in Peace.

How often do each of us fall while at work. A sprained ankle, a bruised arm, a skinned knee and we brush it off. It's nothing we say. More often than not, it is nothing. You probably had the same attitude, but following doctor's orders, you went home, no doubt ready to get back to work. How sad that two days later, a mere fall of 3 feet became a tragic, mortal accident.
It should make us all pause and think.

Though it's been 58 years, it's apparent that the men and women of the Burlington PD have not forgotten you and I'm grateful to them for submitting your name to this wonderful website so that we may all pay our respects.

God Bless and Rest in Peace, brother.

Uncle Albert:
I was only one year old when you passed away and did not get to know you except through the stories of our relatives. I want you to know how proud I am to be a member of a family which included several police officers including my grandfather, your father, who was a Burlington VT police chief.
My thoughts and love are with you and the other members of our family who have gone before me. Rest in Peace.

POLICE OFFICER's Prayer To ST. Michael

ST. Michael, Heaven's glorious Commissioner of Police, who once so neatly and successfully cleared GOD's premises of all it's undesireables,

look with kindly and professional eye on your earthly force.

Give us cool heads, stout hearts, hard punches, an uncanny flair for investigation and wise judgement.

Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores, strict with law breakers and impervious to temptations.

You know, ST. Michael, from your own experiences with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the Devil, and your Angelic self-control give us inspiration.

And when we lay down our nightsticks, enroll us in your Heavenly Force, where we will be as proud to guard the throne of GOD as we have been to guard the city of humankind.


Your BPD Brothers and Sisters
