  • Has It Really Been Two Years????

    November is here again and that makes me think how close we are to the holiday season yet again. Last night in between hearing the Phillies fan's screaming on the TV and the Trick or Treaters running between raindrops looking for candy I remembered what happened two years ago on
    October 31st.

    You will never be forgotten Chuck. I am glad and proud to say that I knew you. Thank you.

    RIP Officer Cassidy. I heard the turnout of the memorial they had tonight was very nice. I didn't know him, but I heard he was a very good man from people he's worked with.
