On October 22, 2006, the LAPD lost Officer Landon Dorris to a tragic accident. Landon’s loss has been a catastrophic event for his lovely widow and their two small boys. Now, long after the speeches are over and the bagpipes have moved on, they must go on without him. Despite this the boys, only babies when they lost their Dad, are growing into fine young men and credits to their Mom and Dad. Let’s keep this brave family and so many others like them in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you and your family Landon and thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Matthew 5:4
