    As you know, I was a friend of both your parents for many years. We all worked together as Special Officers (sworn/part-time) in the Norwalk (CT) Police Department. I learned a lot from both of them. I met you and your siblings as young children and watched you grow up. I remember Charlie and Faye with great affection. Even more so because they knew my wife and daughter. Please pass on this message to your family.
