    I met William Donald Schaefer at Keswick Multi-care Center when his friend Hilda Mae was a resident. Mr. Schaefer was always friendly and polite and his presence will be missed. His hardwork and dedication to the City of Baltimore is greatly appreciated.

    God bless you Mr. Schaefer.

    Why hasn’t the City of Baltimore or the State of Maryland placed a flower at William Donald Schaefer’s Inner Harbor statue? Could it be due to budget cuts? Or are they just too cheap!?
