From the beautiful, strong, incredible Alex Maddox... her husband, Officer Chase Maddox, was killed in the line of duty 4 days before their new son Bodie was born:
There are no words I could possibly find to express my gratitude for the outpouring of love and support for our family. It has been our rock through our worst nightmare. Hearing everyone’s kind words and stories about our Chase has been a guiding light. As we took yesterday to honor my handsome, heroic, amazing hu...sband- seeing everyone lined up for miles upon miles brought a sense of comfort I have not been able to find since 02/09.
To my LGPD and world-wide extended LEO family- your constant presence, reminders and promises that Chase will never be forgotten has eased my heart more than I can put into words. As I tried to take in every aspect of his memorial service yesterday, I could not have imagined a more grand and perfect way to honor our officer. For that and everything else- I will be forever grateful.
The love of my life, my husband, and my hero is Officer Chase Lee Maddox - 216, and because he is mine, I walk the line. ◾️💙◾️
ROAD TO RECOVERY: This is Anthony Borges, 15, who was shot five times in Wednesday's school shooting in Parkland that left 17 people dead. Fortunately, Anthony is recovering, but has a long road ahead with more surgeries needed. On Sunday, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel visited him in the hospital.
The Broward Sheriff's Office posted this photo, asking for prayer for the swift recovery of Anthony and all the other victims of this horrific criminal act. http://on.11alive.com/2C7MIgw
Crying... so important to cherish your loved ones every day they’re here.
Your Daddy is a hero Bodie.
Bodie Allen Maddox was born Tuesday, February 13th, 2018 at 1:52 PM. He weighs 6 pounds and 11 ounces and is 18 and 1/2 inches long.
His Dad, Locust Grove Police Officer Chase Maddox was killed in the line of duty February 9th.
This took my breath away: hundreds of police officers showed up at the hospital today to escort fallen police Officer Chase Maddox’s widow and new baby home. He was killed in the line of duty Friday. Their new baby was born Tuesday. So much strength and compassion in this community.
UPDATE: Alex Maddox has just welcomed a healthy baby boy!
Sending this beautiful, strong woman so much love. Family members say the wife of slain Police Officer Chase Maddox is in labor with their second son. This new little boy’s Daddy died a hero on Friday.
This is beautiful, reported by TradCatFem: A girl with Down syndrome, got up during a regular papal service & went toward Pope Francis.
Security men quickly moved in to take her back to her mom. The Pope stopped them & said to her "come sit next to me.” She then sat down near him and he continued his homily, holding her hands.
