Remembering Our Heroes in Blue





A Hero's Welcome

Time to come home dear brother

Your tour of duty through

You've given as much as anyone

Could be expected to do


Just a few steps further

The smoke will start to clear

Others here will guide you

You have no need of fear


You have not failed your brothers

You clearly gave it all

And through your selfless actions

Others will hear the call


So take your place of honor

Among those who have gone before

And know you will be remembered

For now and evermore

-Robert Longley

Remembering our Fallen Heroes in Blue

Since 1942, we have not had a year where Officer's deaths had been under 100. In 2020 alone, in the United States, there were a total of 307 line of duty fatalities. In honor of those whom held the line till the end, we honor you. To keep their memory alive, we are blessed to have Kids Backing the Blue Comfort Packages be sponsored by the following; Glimmer of Stone Donna Miele, New York Police Department Community Affairs Bureau (NYPD CAB), and Haines City Police Department. Glimmer of Stone graciously makes jewelry for the Fallen Officer's spouse, and Donna donates "Forever my Daddy, Always a Hero" and "Forever my Mommy, Always a Hero" book for the surviving children. NYPD CAB and Haines City PD generously donated stuffed animals to send the the Children of our fallen Heroes.
