Death Notice

From Jim

Below please find the death notice that appeared in The Washington Post on Sunday, January 7, 2006 regarding Sgt. Thomas W. Sweeney — a longtime veteran of the Metropolitan Police Department and of its Fifth District. Sgt. Sweeney has been assigned to the Edgewood community for many years and throughout this term of service, he was a friend, mentor and guide to several generations of youths whom he helped to shepherd into adulthood as well as responsible lives. Ironically, he gave the Fifth District Police crime report at our most recent meeting of ANC 5C on December 16, 2006 and now, in less than a month, he is no longer with us.

Be good to yourselves and those whom you love. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us!!!
