Ptl Shea, you were assigned to a fireworks detail, in todays NYPD that is and probably was in your day an overall enjoyable assignment. You are an example of how coming into work on our job regardless of the job or detail we are on may be our last. You have passed but you will never be forgotten. We pray for you and all the others who also passed. Rest in Peace Dennis.
