Flowers sent from afar, memories of past slain officers and a sea of uniforms at Jobbers-Miller funeral
Neil O'Connor, a retired officer with the New York Police who now lives in Southwest Florida, is very familiar with the practice.
"It's (George) Steinbrenner," O'Connor said. "He does it for every officer killed in the line of duty."
Steinbrenner was the long-time owner of the Bronx Bombers who made it standard to take care of law enforcement families. After his death in Tampa in 2010 the organization continued the practice.
As pre-funeral activity got underway at Germain Arena a sea of blue, green, gray, brown and black law enforcement uniforms filled the main hall, punctuated here and there by military personnel. There were numerous hugs, shoulder claps, handshakes and words of comfort.

BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: Horsemint, curcuma and moonflowers
Blooms include a spotted bee balm or horsemint, a curcuma plant and moonflowers.
The spotted bee balm or horsemint, which is a wild perennial in Florida and a great pollinator, was sent in by Martha Ross of New Smyrna Beach.
"I subscribe to the Darwinian Gardener (thanks, Mark Lane) principles of gardening: plant natives; don't water; and the fit will survive," she wrote.
"My first horsemint came from a roadside. It is always an adventure to see where it will appear in my sandy beach yard the next year," Martha continued. "It grows sometimes four to five feet high. The flowers form towers along the stalk and are very showy. The leaves smell much like oregano and were used by early Floridians (Minorcans) as a seasoning."
She noted that this year her horsemint plants are particularly prolific.
Debbie Fugate of Port Orange, a regular Beautiful Blooms contributor, sent in the curcuma plant, writing, "I love these curcuma flowers. They are a bulb plant and a member of the ginger family. They bloom all summer long and come in several colors. The white ones tend to show off the little purple flowers that peek out the best."
Carol Burdiss Miller of Edgewater shared with us one of the many moonflowers opening in her back yard on Riverside Drive.

Illinois woman chooses Taco Bell for 101st birthday, is 'hooked' on Nacho Fries
Pennsylvania Taco Bell. A pregnant Kentucky woman is tracking her baby's growth with Taco Bell menu items. And last year, a Florida couple took some wedding photos inside the Mexican-inspired fast-food chain.
"Whether it's as a backdrop to senior grad photos, a wedding venue or a birthday destination from 1 to 101, Taco Bell's role in our fan's biggest life-moments show the power of the brand in culture and the importance of our Team Members' role in the community," Taco Bell spokesman Matt Prince said in a statement.
