Such a common reason for Sisters and Brothers to leave us. A heart attack is all too often to blame for taking one of the family and for it to be family member from the Philadelphia Police is very sad. This Department seems to have given so many and so many more seem to surface as time goes by.

Officer Schmidt, thank you for your service and may God bless you. Rest in Peace.
