Our Fallen Officers Are Now "Off Duty" (Touching Photos)

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I attended the funeral service for our three fallen police officers yesterday. It was a very emotional day. I thought as a final tribute to them, I would post a few photos to give just a glimpse of the outpouring of love and pride that our community, our nation and the world have toward these fallen heroes.

Part of the procession

It was a long procession

The funeral

An outpouring of love

The officers' faces tell it all

Cst. Ross' police dog Danny cries at his casket

Danny sniffs Cst. Ross' Stetson hat

Danny wonders where "Daddy" is

Cst. Ross' widow, Rachel

Cst. Larche's family

May we never forget

As if by magic, the showers held off until evening. They were just short showers but after the showers a rainbow appeared over the police station. Was someone telling us something?

To the fallen: May you rest in peace. You are now officially 10:35 "Off Duty".

    Thank you Bob for sharing, yes I agree, a deeply emotional day as I watched the Service, tears flowed as I listened to the many tributes from Family, Fellow Peers, and the Police Chief, seeing the Widows, Children and Families of these Precious Fallen Heroes moved me to tears, The sight of Constable Ross widow, Rachel great with their unborn child and Danny, (Police Dog), faithful friend and partner crying at Constable Ross Casket moved me with such emotion. What a touching scene and outpouring of love. The outpouring of love by all the Officer's who paid tribute to their "Fallen Comrade's" The Rainbow is surely a sign from God, for healing to flow amongst the people in Moncton and throughout Canada. emoticon
