Woman creates "Tree of Honor" in memory of fallen police officers

(WWBT) -

A police officer and his partner accidentally went to the wrong address while out on a run, and they came across a tribute.

The officer said that "the owner took the time to write down every officer killed in the line of duty this year and place it on the tree." 

The owner also included all the K-9s on the ornaments, and she called it the "Tree of Honor."

What a wonderful tribute:

Partner and I accidentally went to the wrong address today on a run and stumbled across this beautiful tree. The owner took the time to write down every Officer killed in the line of duty this year and place it on the tree. Not only did she do all the Humans but she included all the K9s on the small ornaments. She calls it the "Tree of Honor" guess our paths were meant to cross since she just finished it last night.
