Non Cpd, but thank you to all in blue.

Worked with Mike for a few years. Ask anyone- all he cared about in life was his daughters and their well being. He worked around the clock to help pay for his daughter's special foods. He went from work to a side job and back again. How does a family go from getting that police pay check and side job money to hardly none at all- especially with a special needs daughter. If there was ever a benefit to attend, this is one of them. If you can't make it please by a raffle ticket or two. Please contact Unit 193 @ 312-746-7901 for ticket info.

RIP Mike
