To the Harvey family,..
Many of us remember Sgt Alfred as a friendly, decent, and competent officer, boss, and coworker.  We thank him for his service to the public's safety and for his service to our country in the Korean War.  May his soul Rest in Everlasting Peace and may you, his family, find peace as well....
