Farewell Officer Jared Francom- Ogden Police Department

I've been keeping up on this story because it has shook our community and I feel it  has brought out the goodness in people. Everyone is coming together and doing funraisers and different things for the family... getting involved in ribbon making and flag holding as his funeral procession tours the city before he recides at his final resting place. My work is allowing us to go outside as they pass today to honor our fallen officer, how humbling this will be.

I was on my way to work this morning and passed the mortuary where his viewing was last night. I glanced over and there was a dim light in the lobby and at the doorway to the left, I saw another officer in his dress uniform standing guard. It hit me then... I was SOBBING in my car. I dont know this man... but I do know the impact his has left on our community. I know the protection we had due to his faithful service. I know our city is heartbroken with his loss.

I am imagining him in Heaven and the Lord saying " 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!" (Matthew 25:23)

Officer Francom, thank you for your work here on Earth. You were committed, you served and protected, you gave it your all. Rest in Peace.

Your post made me cry, Lisa. Whenever something like this happens, I just thank God my brother-in-law is not on patrol anymore.
