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. ◾️💙◾️

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.
