Reflections for Detective Simon Arthur Carie

My name is Melana Carey, I am Simon Carie's great-grand daughter. Simon's son Herschel was my dad's father, as a small girl I was told the stories by my great grandmother Derci Carie (Simon's Widow) and was shown the clothes he wore the day he was shot. Vincennes In. placed a memorial stone for Simon in front of the police station, so nice. Previous comment was made by Darrell Carie, connected by a family, I would love to know more about your connection. Simon's Widow didn't receive any petition upon his murder and struggled to raise his children, hope this situation had been corrected for other officer's families.
