Off Duty Troopers Help Volunteer as Pallbearers

A story was published approximately two weeks ago about a Delaware resident who died in a medical facility and unfortunately no one came forward to claim her remains.

After reading this story some members of the Delaware State Police Honor Guard, who service funerals for fallen Troopers, retired Troopers and dignitaries, were touched and moved to do something after learning about this story. They elected to volunteer their time so that this Delaware neighbor could be laid to rest with dignity and grace.

Volunteers from the Delaware State Police Honor Guard carried her to her final resting place. These thoughtful members, who are committed to help and serve, attended a short graveside service at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, January 23, 2015.

This is a great example of how Delaware Troopers are showing a real caring and genuine concern for others in Delaware and how we can come together to help each other through difficult times. Thank you for volunteering to help and serve those in our communities.

Very touching. I am a grown man and shed a tear for this act of kindness from Delaware's finest. This is something they did not have to do.
