The Passing of Roger L. Abel
Past Guardian President
A Visionary Community Leader
Dear Brothers and Sisters
As we all know, our Big Brother, Roger Abel, former President of the Guardians Association, passed away this last weekend. Roger has been a mentor, leader and a fighter up to his last days for equality for ALL African American members of the service as well as our communities. Mr. Abel was a ICON, amongst those in the Guardians Association and we must never forget the sacrifice that he made to make the NYPD a better place to work for all those who followed after him. My prayers and those of the Guardians Association's Membership go out to the Abel Family. This organization will stand by the family in their time of need for the lost of their loved one. The service information provide below was sent out by the department. We must send our Big Brother home with Pride. So it is imperative that there is a strong showing at the services describe below. We owe that much to DETECTIVE ROGER L. ABEL
P.S. Please pass along to others

Subj: Passing of Another Elder
Just received some bad news. Mel Branker passed away last Wednesday (3/17/10). A memorial service will be held for him on Friday, March 26, 2010 at 6PM at the Mt. Vernon Heights Congregational Church at 258 So. Columbus Ave, Mt. Vernon NY 10553.
This hit me kind heavy; Mel and I would speak periodically. We always talked about getting together one more time when he got a little bit better but that time never came. Please do me a favor and see that this gets out to our correction family, especially those who knew him (he was the midnight kitchen officer in HDM). Thanks.
SEE YOU AT THE TOP!!!
