    It makes me so happy that the Raleigh City Council approved the request for the memorial for the fallen officers. That will be a place I can go and say a little pray or just set down and spend so time there, my son 's name will be on the memorial. Thanks to The Raleigh City Council. Mother Of A Fallen Officer.
