A Note Of Gratitude

This is a letter I have been meaning to pen for a while but, like most of us, have gotten caught up in the busyness of daily life.

I am writing to publicly thank the Southampton Village Police officers and dispatchers. This thank you is not only for the more dangerous and heroic work that you do but for the more mundane work that is thankless and often overlooked.

As the owner of the Brockett Funeral Home, I have called on the village to offer assistance in leading a funeral procession countless times, and they have never let us down. Each call is put in to the dispatchers, who then seamlessly arrange coordination with the officers.

While this might seem like an ordinary task, this line of cars leading to the place of rest is a powerful sign of respect honoring a loved one. To have officers leading the way and keeping everyone safe means more to that mourning family than the SVPD will ever know.

We take these small acts of respect for granted from a local police department, but they are worth recognizing. Thank you.
