I had the honor of reading your name today at the Law Enforcement Memorial in St.Paul. We have not forgotten you!

Police Officer Charles Mayer was my great grandfather. Of course I never knew him but I did know his wife, Bertha Mayer, and daughter, Mathilde Mayer (my grandmother). She later married Gustave Barfuss, Acting Chief of Police, St. Paul and Commissioner of Health and Public Safety. I have my great grandfather's portrait hanging above my fireplace mantel in the highest place of honor in my home. Thank you all for your warm remarks.
