Tenaha Police Dept. kicks off Roses for Moms in celebration of Mother's Day
The Tenaha Police Department conducted its first annual Roses for Moms in celebration of Mother's Day, according to Chief of Police Jeremy H. Pope.
On Sunday, department members tipped their hats to all the wonderful mothers out there that sacrifice so much and show so much love for their children, he said.
On Mother's Day, as officers volunteered their time, they gave roses to mothers they encountered on today's patrols.
“It was such a blessing and I wish we had more opportunities to meet more mothers,” Pope said. “If we didn't get an opportunity to meet you today and give you a rose, we would still like to wish you a very Happy Mothers Day!”
As for those mothers so dearly missed, the Tenaha Police Department has left roses in its department window in remembrance of mothers who are still in our hearts but no longer with us.
Best stated by the late George Jones "You know there's one person we turn to so many times in our lives. When we need help in our troubles, trials and tribulations we always turn to mamas, and she's the main one and a lot of times we take her, so much for granted."
