My Dad, PTL. Charles Fogarty Sr., was good friends with Hank, I was introduced to him as a kid, we used to get together and watch Ranger hockey games with him and his sons. My Dad is now 77 and is still talking about his dear fallen freind. He was a great man, member of a great family, and was truly a hero.

I was a neighbor and family friend of Mr. Schmeimann. I remember when it happened, although I was only 8 at the time, it was such a tragedy, especially for his children. What a great loss. His family is thriving and I recently visited the old neighborhood and was fortunate enough to see and speak to his son Paul. He was a wonderful man and even as a young child I always felt he was a kind soul and his life was cut so short. Very sad this world lost a man like that.

For all those that have posted comments about my dad. I would like to inform you that the family remains steadfast to ensure John Smith remains incarcarated. We continue to write impact statements whenever he comes up for parole. The entire family is doing well. Thanks for all your kind words. We miss our dad everyday as wel as our mom.

Our father, Lt. Anthony Santoro of the NYPD, was Henry's partner, and our families were friends. We were all devastated by the shocking news of his death. We both remember it as if it were yesterday, and have often thought of him and the family through the years. May he rest in peace.
