Dear Kerzaya Family. I am saddened to learn of your loss. I fondly recall meeting with the family when your dad, really your mom, was the 'Resident Family" at Fort Hunt. He was one of my favorite supervisors on the Park Police. I know he was loved and admired by many and he will be dearly missed after a full and good life. May the memory of his loss soon give way to all the good memories each of you have stored up and may the goodness he lavished on his friends and loved ones be multiplied in the lives of those he is leaving behind. My prayers are with you and you have my deepest sympathy.

Fraternally, with warm personal regards. Bob Harvey, Lt. Ret'd U.S. Park Police (Ronnie and I retired the same day)
