My heart goes out to you, Mrs. Gibson. Your story on NBC caught my eye when I saw the date of your son's death. Feb. 5...two years later on that very day, my son, who was 26, was shot and killed while making an arrest in Detroit. I'm so sorry for your loss.
My husband and I, along with my other sons, truly understand your grief, accompanied by the great pride that is felt in having such a fine young man for your son. Know that we send our love and prayers, especially during these holiday seasons, and I know that no matter how many years pass, it still seems like it just happened. Thank you for your testimony of love that you have shown by the 'holiday dinners' you prepared for many years for the D.C. officers. May God continue to bless you and your family in the years to come. We lift prayers to the Lord for all our Officers and their families, and thank God for the privilege of being mothers to these brave officers. We join you in honoring the precious memory of your son Brian.
