Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

Rest in peace Officer Morrissy. My sincere condolences to your family and to your department. I had the pleasure of meeting you when I was stationed in Great Lakes Naval Station. I was at the Reserve Center there in Oak Forest and got to meet you for some reason. I remember because I was doing my Master-at-Arms qualifications. God speed as you now patrol the streets of gold.
