Some photographs are able to tell a story in ways that words can’t always. This is one of the most heart-wrenching and moving photographs from the funeral of slain NYPD Detective Wilbert Mora, which took place this week in Manhattan.
During the tribute, two young children on tiny wheels pay their condolences to fallen Officer Mora.
Det. Mora, along with his partner Det. Jason Rivera, were slain in the line of duty after responding to a 911 call in Harlem.
Thousands of law enforcement officers paying their respects formed an “ocean of blue” outside St. Patrick’s Cathedral for Rivera’s funeral last week, and the same respect was shown for Mora’s funeral on Wednesday.
Det. Mora saved many lives during his career and because of his organ donor status will continue to save lives after he is laid to rest.
