One of the largest and latest additions came from students at Des Moines Christian. They dropped off a banner, some cards and their prayers for the family of Officer Justin Martin and the men and women he served with.

One of the most touching notes came from a 7-year-old boy.

This is what he wrote to his father, Urbandale Officer Randy Peterson, after seeing him crying over the loss of a fellow officer.
