Police Escort

My husband's uncle passed away over the weekend, and we were able to attend the funeral today.  He was a retired police officer with the Arlington Police Department, and so the police force played a large role in the funeral service.  It was such a touching service, in large part due to the police force.  You could feel the love he had from all those in the room.

After the funeral was over, there was a police motorcade to escort the family over twenty miles down the interstate to enjoy a meal which had been prepared for the family.  I have never been in a police motorcade before, but this was my view the whole time.
I must say, this was the first time in my life I have had a police officer following me with his lights on that I wasn't nervous.  Here, about half of the police officers stood for a picture.
