North Dallas' Watermark Community Church was not nearly big enough for the thousands of mourners who had gathered to honor a true American hero, Police Officer David Sherrard who was killed in the line of duty on 7 February while responding to a disturbance at an apartment complex.

Rowlett Fire Department ladder trucks flanked the street at Rowlett and Kyle in front of the cemetery entrance whilst hundreds stood waiting for hours in cold drizzle just to watch the procession pass. Everyone wanted to pay their respects to the family.

Police officer Haley Adams took her 5-year-old daughter with her to see the procession and pay her respects: "It was the least I could do."

"This officer had kids. Definitely gets me right in the heart. Too many."

Widowed Ms Nicole Sherrard spoke with a trembling voice as she shared a deeply personal account of the ups and downs of the couple, explaining that the last couple of years were certainly the happiest, as they both committed to putting their God and their marriage ahead of anything else.

"If you've heard nothing else today, know that it doesn't matter where your marriage is at, it doesn't matter what has happened in your marriage, God can fix it,"

"Nothing is too big for God. You just have to have faith and put in the work."
