Well-deserved respect

To the editor:

Recently, the Jonesboro Police Department showed us what small-town police departments are all about. Citizens who attended the funeral for Lucy Yonce witnessed a show of respect that brought tears to our eyes as the procession traveled to the cemetery. Officers at every intersection were at attention, or had their hands over their hearts. At the gravesite, were 3 motorcycle officers saluting as the hearse passed by.

I personally thank any and all involved in planning and carrying this out. As a former First Lady of Jonesboro, she deserved no less. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
