|Officer Richard Martin, Houston Police Department|
On Friday we held his service in Houston (Officer Martin was buried in Oklahoma today). How his 22 year old daughter got through her comments was beyond me. His 11 year old son stood bravely but had the Houston Police Chaplain Monty Montgomery read his letter to his dad, including these words:
After the ceremony Chaplain Montgomery directed the assembled officers out and they were formed into groups, including Houston Police, Harris County Sheriff’s Office and military. A horse drawn hearse brought his casket for the final ceremony.“…I will make good grades and work hard, And when I play in the major leagues, I will think of you. I will follow your steps into law enforcement….”
We will hold the line from here. Thank you for your service we will never forget your sacrifice . May you rest in peace Officer Martin and may God watch over your family.
