Steven...you're a better man than I...not sure I would have the faith and courage to forgive someone who destroyed my life but on another platform enhanced it. You will never be forgotten for your incredible spirit and love of life and family.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May the Angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs greet you at your arrival and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem.
May the choir of Angels greet you and like Lazarus, who once was a poor man, may you have eternal rest.

Police Officer Joseph P.Johnson
Ret., NYPD

Steven was simply grace personified, and now joins his lovely Mother, in Heaven.

The McDonald Family is clearly one of, if not the most prominent family, in NYPD History. Now as a fourth generation of McDonald's serve the city.

May God bless Steven, Patti, Connor, David and Tom.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
