My Great Uncle Jameson Longworth was a fine Officer and was killed in the line of duty even though he survived paralyzing injuries for 14 years. He fought to regain function for those 14 years but GOD took him home. The Greeley and Weld County Colorado Law Enforcement community included him on the Fallen Officers Memorial at Bittersweet Park in Greeley. I was honored to attend this memorial service for Jim and the other officers. THANK YOU WELD COUNTY and Greeley PD for your duty and honor for these officers. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
