My mother Peg told us the story over and over she was so proud of him. I think the reason she took us over to Castle Island so many times was so she could be close to him. Everyone needs a hero and he and my Dad were mine.

How it warms my heart to see your face displayed for all to see! The courage , honor and bearing is treasured, and Aunt Mary always told us how proud you were to walk the beat on "pill Hill" in So. Boston. I was so touched to read how your partner, Officer Dan Moriarty held up your head in the water off Castle Island in a vain attempt to save you, at the risk of his own life. In your last moment, you were , and still are, so very much respected and loved.Thank you..

Patrolman Carr, it was 90 years ago today that you were taken from friends and family due to a tragic bridge collapse. I hope those responsible for that bridge were held accountable. I know that, even though you were taken physically from this world, you stayed by the sides of those most dear to you. Despite all these years, your death is still mourned and you have not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
