Police Officer's Funeral

I happened to drive by this extraordinary display this morning and wanted to share. My picture doesn't nearly do it justice. I considered getting closer for better pictures but, I didn't want to be disrespectful. I have never seen an American Flag as big as this one!

After a little investigating, I learned that this was a funeral for a local police detective, Ward Thomas. He was only 44.

I think Detective Thomas would have been proud of how his fellow officers and fire fighters showed their respect. He was obviously a very important member of the force.

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I hold a special place in my heart for police officers. I almost became one myself (if you can believe that) and have a couple close friends that are cops. It's tough to hear when an officer was lost too soon.

I don't know. I do know he died in his home, though.
