Thank you for funding our stay at Police Week 2018.
I was a bit apprehensive about attending because my Dad‘s death had happened 3 years prior and I thought my grieving process was as done as it could be. However, I found the environment so very supportive and open. So many people dealing with similar losses came right up to talk to us and made it okay to verbalize our story and validate our loss. The candle light vigil and memorial service were so very special and it really made me happy to have something like that to honor my Dad and his contribution. This event also allowed my brother and I and our spouses to process our feelings of loss together in an environment where we could do so openly and without distractions of day to day life. We felt very cared for and this experience is something I will never forget. It‘s so reassuring to have a support network that truly understands a loss like this. My brother is also an officer and had told me the LEOs are a family and I feel I truly witnessed that family in action during the week, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing this funding for families experiencing line of duty losses,
Sincerely Kim
