Scott Johnson, 18, was among the students who was there. He wore his Boy Scout uniform as he held dozens of American flags to hand out to those gathered. A student at nearby Maple Mountain High School, he said he felt like it was his responsibility to help out where he could.
Mary Brockbank’s home on 300 South was decorated to greet the procession: An American flag flew at half-staff in front of the home, another was suspended above her porch stairs, and the porch pillars bore blue ribbons. Brockbank wore a sweater in the colors of the American flag.
Her daughter Sandra Stokes, prompted the patriotism at the home, saying that it was a “very small” way to thank the officers and Wride for their service.
"It makes us speechless," son Shea Wride said of the community's support for their family, in between the funeral and interment services.
