Philadelphia Says Goodbye To A Hero

By Wyatt Earp | February 20, 2009


It is our seventh goodbye in two and a half years.

The city of Philadelphia is once again saying goodbye to a police officer killed in the line of duty.

Dozens of officers gathered early Friday morning for the funeral procession of 25-year-old Officer John Pawlowski, one week after he was fatally shot in the Olney section of the city.

Hundreds are expected to gather at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul to pay their respects during a viewing starting at 7 a.m. Funeral services are planned for noon, followed by a procession to Resurrection Cemetery in Bensalem. (H/TCBS3)

Godspeed, John.

And again, here is the information for anyone who would like to contribute to the Pawlsowski family fund. John leaves behind a wife who is five months pregnant with their first child.

    I hope God has special blessings for his wife and child. Just a sad week on top of a sad couple of years. On my way to work someone had a sign in the back of her car about supporting the Philadelphia Police Department. I wish the outward support was there for you guys all of the time.

    Very very sad Wyatt.

    To be young and 25 with his whole life ahead. Then he is murdered in a moment.

    I will send a donation too.

    RT – Never happen. That’s okay, though – we know we’re doing a thankless job.

    AJ – Thanks.

    Sully – May he rest in peace.
