Thousands attend RCMP regimental funeral service for Moncton officers

I took time to watch the funeral  for the RCMP officers on my computer. In memory of the fallen officers: Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, Douglas James Larche and Dave Joseph Ross. Condolences to the families and comrades. Healing and recovery for all, including Darlene Goguen and Eric Dubois who were wounded. Thank you for your service.

    • I was impressed by the length of the parade of officers from our country and beyond.We forget that those who serve are people like you and I , with families, hobbies, etc.Also the outpouring of love and support from the community was important.

I thought my own blog paled in comparison to this ,so reblogged it.
