My Final Photo for Feb. 22, 2018. 7 Comments Judie Behling on February 23, 2018 at 7:12 am It was a beautiful tribute to our fallen officers. We really respect all of Westerville’s officers. It will be wonderful to have a permanent memorial for them at the first responders park. The leaders in Westerville are very smart and sensitive to the needs of our United loving community. We will never forget. Linda Jones on February 23, 2018 at 7:38 am So proud to be a part of this great city.. God Bless Westerville and all the officers that make it great.

Words can’t describe the feelings. Thank you so much for what you do! Westerville is a wonderful town to live. Prayers always!~~~ Debbie gibson on February 23, 2018 at 8:40 am I still can not put my heart to rest I am still so sad for the families, the chief, the friends and our city of Westerville. IT didn’t have to be this way. They didn’t need to die this way. I am trying to get through this but I feel like it’s a part of my family and I lost 2 family members. That’s not something you get over in a week, a month or even a year. WE ARE WESTERVILLE STRONG. Praying and wishing I could do more.
