We are saddened to
learn of the passing of P.O. William Leahy. EOW
Leahy fought long and
hard, but finally succumbed to a 9/11 related
illness. William, May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back. May the sun
shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon
your fields and until we meet again, may God hold
you in the palm of His hand. God Bless you!
