Letter: Outpouring of support appreciated
On behalf of my entire office, I would like to extend our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the outpouring of support shown to us during the recent loss of Deputy Sheriff Tommy Hudson. The list of businesses and citizens that reached out to us is great, so I will not attempt to list them all here.
There have been cards and flowers delivered to our office, along with food and refreshments from local restaurants and individuals, which helped us through many long hours. I also would like to thank Gloucester Sheriff Darrell Warren and his office, and the Virginia State Police Division 5, Area 33 Office, for their support and assistance during this time.
To my own staff, I thank everyone who continued with the everyday operations of this office and our service to the community, although everyone was hurting inside.
Sheriff L. Mark Barrick
Mathews County Sheriff’s Office
