Police Commissioner Town of Hamburg NJ

There is a port of no return where ships may ride at anchor for a little space. And then some starless night the cable slips leaving only an eddy at the mooring place. Gulls veer no longer, Sailor rest your oars, no tangled wreckage will be washed ashore.

The Final Patrol
Lord, this departed shipmate with dolphins on his chest is part of an outfit known as the best.

Make him welcome and take him by the hand. You'll find without a doubt he was the best in all the land.

So, heavenly Father add his name to the roll of our departed shipmates still on patrol.

Let them know that we who survive will always keep their memories alive.
