    Bill you will be missed on Seaward way. I will always remember you coming over whistling and our dog bear who has passed loved you. And I won’t have to buy the giant olives that you loved. We enjoyed teasing each about the New York Football Giants and the Vikings. And sitting next to You and Linda at the performing arts shows. Art and Mary Ellen;

    Captain Bracken will always hold a place in my heart. As a young police officer he was a real calming presence and treated us with respect and dignity. He was well respected by all. Rest in peace sir.
