I had the pleasure of meeting Officer Worthy’s son today and he briefly but very proudly told me about his father being a fallen Little Rock Police Officer. I thanked him for his father’s service and told him I would look more into learning about him. Thank you Officer Worthy for your service and sacrifice. Your life mattered.
