As we pay our respects today and tomorrow, I am thankful to the Governor and Legislature for taking the first steps to increase the state's Line of Duty Death benefit. The Walsh and Kennedy families will need ongoing support in this immediate time of need and for years to come. We all know that no amount of money can replace Lieutenant Edward Walsh or Firefighter Michael Kennedy, but this benefit increase shows the Commonwealth's true commitment to supporting the families of our fallen heroes and our profound appreciation for the sacrifice that they have made.
