I had two heroes in my life, my father was a hero to me and my sister and our mother - We recently buried my mom next to our father so the high school sweethearts are together again. We want to thank the retired and active police officers who came out and helped carry our mother to her final resting place next to our father. We are and will remain family in blue, in the brotherhood and in life eternal.

Thank you gentlemen, we are forever grateful
