To Mourn a Hero

October 13, 2016 – St. Louis police officer Blake Snyder was honored and laid to rest. He was fatally shot in the line of duty on October 6.

Coming from a family of law enforcers (both my brothers and their wives), my cousins, uncles, who have chosen a vocation to protect and serve, this was close to home for me. There can never be enough words to describe how it feels to lose someone in any manner or form.

The community and fellow first responders paid tribute and join in mourning the family of Officer Snyder.

I joined the Firefighters of the Black Jack Protection District and Spanish Lake Fire Protection District, Paramedics from Christian Hospital and the rest of the community to take a brief moment to honor our fallen hero.

Sharing that moment with all of you.
