MOUNT JULIET, TN (WSMV) - Mount Juliet Police officers helped a woman see her dying husband when she couldn’t travel to the hospice care center in Nashville.
The woman called police to ask for help after being called and told that her husband or many years was fighting his last battle with cancer and wasn’t going to survive much longer. She wanted to hold his hand one last time.
“Mount Juliet Police didn’t hesitate. We sent an officer to pick her up and assist,” Mount Juliet Police Capt. Tyler Chandler said in a social media post. “She was with her husband for a few hours, said her goodbye, and the officer transported her back home alone.”
Chandler asked for prayers for her and her family and the police officers.
“They truly have to experience so many emotional events, but they don’t mind,” Chandler said of the officers. “They simply want to serve their community.”
