Cops Eating After Sgt. Gannon's Funeral Get Surprise With Receipt
Chelsea, MA – An anonymous woman quietly expressed her gratitude for the sacrifices of law enforcement on Tuesday, when she covered the cost of a meal for a group of Chelsea police officers.
When they went to pay their bill, they were met with an anonymous act of kindness.
“When we went to pay the check we were presented with a bill marked PAID and a note saying, ‘Thanks, my brother is a detective in Miami,’” the officer explained.
“I do not know who you are but I hope that someone shares this Post with you so that you know how important your kindness was to all of us,” he told the woman in the post. “What an amazing gesture of gratitude, respect and kindness. God Bless You.”
The officer also praised the Mamma Mia’s staff for going “out of their way to make us feel appreciated.”
“Women, children, men and boys – every one of them was quiet, respectful,” Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson said, according to FOX News. “The first time I think I could I think hear a pin drop and you could hear it on Route 28.”
Sgt. Gannon – who was promoted to the sergeant’s rank posthumously – was fatally shot in the head as he and other officers attempted to serve a warrant at a residence.
