The last pics of Mel's cousin: http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2011/apr/08/final-salute/?local The police chief's eulogy is especially moving for its pure emotion, and when the bagpipes started playing, it shook everyone present. Probably 3000 in the church itself, and many more joined us on the way to the grave. The police tributes - the empty horse, the last radio call, the honor guard, etc. - were unsurpassed for their emotional impact and depth of feeling. Truly powerful symbols.

Yes, I am in some of the pictures and video. Don't think I have ever been saluted by that many police officers...
