I’m burning a blue light on my porch for the fallen officers in Westerville , Ohio. I was thanked by neighbors, Keith and Pam Marceau. It is then that I learned of Kevin Marceau’s passing from an injury in the line if duty in Dallas, Texas. It is very sad that we our lose law enforcement officers. They put their life on the line every day to protect us. God bless you all.
